The company that models the world
Descartes Labs was founded with the belief that planetary knowledge has the power to radically alter how companies, governments and nonprofits carry out their charter.
Descartes Labs is the first company with a geospatial data refinery for building predictive models. And we’re the only company to combine a highly scalable data processing and modeling platform with a massive geospatial data library. Our elite team of scientists are recognized leaders in the field, helping enterprise customers create competitive advantage through scientifically validated analytics.
Descartes Labs serves hundreds of global companies, governments and impact organizations around the world—across industries that include agriculture, mining and metals, oil and gas, shipping and logistics, power and renewables and insurance.
In 2014, a team of scientists with decades of experience at Los Alamos National Laboratory decided to start a company. For years they collaborated on problems of global significance.
Our scientist-founders are experts in large scale computing, artificial intelligence, and satellite imagery. They built a technology stack that makes science faster, providing limitless computing power and seamless access to petabytes of scientifically calibrated data.
Descartes Labs is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico with offices in San Francisco, New York, DC, Minneapolis, and Denver. We have raised $58 million from investors that include March Capital Partners, Cultivian Sandbox Ventures and Crosslink Capital.
