Our Story... So Far

Predicting the future is why this business exists. We’re building a global demand intelligence powerhouse and are right at the beginning of our plans.

The origin of PredictHQ

It’s unusual for any product to sign Uber as its first customer, especially one created more than 6500 miles away from San Francisco. But PredictHQ has been hugely ambitious and global from day one, and we’re only just getting started.

PredictHQ is based in San Francisco and New Zealand, where it was founded in Auckland in 2014. Campbell Brown identified a major gap in forecasting and marketing: knowing exactly why a demand spike was happening. Harnessing the why made demand predictable, earning companies major competitive advantage in forecasting, pricing and marketing.

His research showed this elusive why was almost always due to events. But how to capture these efficiently and reliably at scale?

After several frustrating weeks, it became clear manual discovery was enormously expensive, error-prone and ultimately ineffective. Campbell partnered with Robert Kern, and began building PredictHQ’s discovery and verification engine.
