​With a staff of 33 developers and data scientists working in cities around the world and a just-closed, oversubscribed $1.25 million from high-profile investors, PredictifyMe is getting ready to bring its predictive analytics platform to major retailers, insurance, education and healthcare companies. 

If this Raleigh company sounds familiar, that’s because it grabbed national and local headlines in March when it inked a deal with the United Nations to provide its software to schools in Pakistan, Nigeria and Lebanon, helping them predict and prevent suicide bombings. The company has a culture of social impact, and will continue to execute on that partnership as it expands into the commercial market. 

But the latest news is all about bringing analytics never before used or understood in business to the fingertips of marketers and sales teams, educators, insurers, human resources managers and more, eliminating the need for sophisticated data scientists and many other existing tools. 

The team and vision was impressive enough to land as lead investor the founder of a $9 billion private equity firm as well as a lead partner at a large Silicon Valley law firm and Greg Diamond, the Miami-based multi-millionaire entrepreneur and founder of TIGER 21, an angel group of high net-worth individuals with the ability to invest $10 million or more in startups.

None of the money came from local investors.
