Canecto was started based on a frustration of not being able to find a similar solution. A solution that can give in-depth insights and actionable recommendations on how to improve external and internal digital efforts.
The founding team has more than 20 years of experience managing websites. Despite extensive knowledge on how to drive successful online platforms and websites, we lacked a tool that could give us this exact information. We worked a lot with data previously but there were no tools, that were able to tell us what users prefer, and even more importantly how to improve a website accordingly.
Canecto is based just outside Copenhagen at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). We are fortunate to be around the brightest data scientists in the country. We are right in the middle of a mix of students, start-ups and capital funds on the part of DTU called Scion DTU.
