Our Stories are Fired by Big Data and AI
Genesis of Crayon
At an airport, three pre-Crayon entrepreneurs struck up an interesting conversation. They had been there, done that, and were raring to do it again. With decades of experience between them, the inspiration for Crayon Data came easy. Today, that idea has grown into a leader in the AI and Big Data space.
