About Sturdy
SturdyAI transforms language into data that teams use to improve and inform work. We  are a venture-backed technology startup founded by seasoned SaaS industry veterans with demonstrated prior success building and scaling technology companies. 

Our customer intelligence solution is purpose-built for B2B SaaS and technology enabled subscription businesses. Critical business signals are trapped in language across layers of technology gathering digital dust. SturdyAI uses advanced data science to reveal opportunities and risks and delivers just-in-time insights so humans can take the best next steps.

For B2B SaaS companies, consistent growth comes from a complete understanding of your customers. More than 15% of everyday language generated by your users contain a signal that can indicate a risk or an opportunity. Signals come from hundreds of potential sources.  The challenge is consistently identifying them and getting them to the right individuals or workflows in time to create an optimal outcome.
