Today, being able to predict consumer behavior is key to building brands and staying competitive. However, this is a highly specialized, cumbersome and time-consuming process – often taking months. With Endor, marketers can get the insights they need in a matter of hours.
Endor’s analytical engine is based on a revolutionary new science discovered at MIT called Social Physics. Simply put, Social Physics is a set of mathematical laws that govern how groups of people behave. Using these established patterns, rather than having to detect patterns as most analytic tools do, Endor can predict consumer behavior and trends quickly and can do so with limited data. This means, the answers needed to ensure the vitality of your business are just a query away.

Before founding Endor, Doron was a partner at Eric Shcmidt's VC Innovation Endeavors, where he focused on discovering, investing and supporting brilliant entrepreneurs in Israel. Doron holds an MBA from Stanford GSB and a BA in economics from Tel-Aviv University.

Platica (Spanish for 'Conversation') allows people to access services and content using natural language conversation. Our vertical artificial intelligence bots enable brands to create a new communication channel that's natural for humans to interact with, available 24/7, and where people already spend most of their online time: IM and chat apps.
We believe conversation is the new UX. An ongoing dialogue between customers and brands increases loyalty, reduces frustration and churn, offloads customer care representatives, and creates unique opportunities for upsell. It's time to move beyond the outdated app model, towards a more humane mode of interaction.
