How did I come with the idea?

“During my career I have helped Risk Managers build various type of risk reports to identify natural hazards risk exposures and values accumulations, optimize insurance coverage and negotiate renewal terms with underwriters. I experienced firsthand how difficult it is to visualize and analyze risk because useful data is buried in spreadsheets, comes from different sources and different formats, requires intensive manual intervention and static data models usually offer an incomplete view of risk. As a result, it is tedious and time consuming to create easy to understand custom reports.
This is what prompted me to create Maptycs, a next generation risk data analytics and geospatial visualization platform designed for risk professionals to gain actionable insights from their data. “
