Our Origin Story

Who we are and how Knowi came about

Office Picture 3

An Oakland Company

Knowi has been an Oakland company since day one. We believe that #TownTech can be a model for diversity, inclusion, and civic responsibility–to the global community and the local one.

What makes Knowi different?

There are a lot of business intelligence platforms out there. What makes Knowi unique is that it’s built from a data-first perspective. While other tools where built to focus on flashy visuals, Knowi was structured from day one to connect to any type of data from any data source. This makes Knowi ideal for use-cases like IoT analytics and healthcare analytics.
