Milano – October 5, 2017 – Mathesia, the first crowdsourcing platform specialized in applied math sciences, has just closed a deal with a group of important Italian entrepreneurs and managers for a 700.000 Euro investment round.

Founded by Moxoff, a spin-off of Politecnico di Milano and Yottacle, a startup incubated at PoliHub, Mathesia offers to entrepreneurs the skills of the best data science, modeling, simulation and optimization specialists in the world. On theplatform, in just a few clicks, it is possible to get solutions to complex problems related to product and process improvement. Thanks to data analysis, machine learning and algorithm design, enterprises find on Mathesia the perfect way to excellence in nowadays business scenario.
