Soffos Inc. is a corporate learning business, based in Austin, TX, and was founded in 2019.
Progress on the Soffos™ platform is now extremely promising. Unlike competitors' solutions, Soffos™ will auto-assimilate and 'understand' knowledge without human oversight, rendering it highly scalable. Corporate knowledge transfer is via natural (spoken and / or typed) language, just as a person would converse with a human trainer.
Soffos™ doesn’t use mere 'signposting' of knowledge and multiple-choice assessment. It will ask questions, find knowledge gaps, provide mandatory and important insights, then verify the person’s understanding of them via Q&A.
The senior team has a seasoned pedigree between them. Our key people variously come from backgrounds in EdTech, entrepreneurship, data science and taking startups from a zero balance sheet to millions in revenue within remarkably rapid timescales.
