Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Our generation’s repositories of human knowledge have become massive, and digital, which is why Causaly's solution to boost research productivity has received much acclaim.

Swiss Novartis is Causaly’s first customer, quickly followed by an array of pharma and biotech companies that are leveraging the platform to accelerate their execution.

The company collaborates with strong research labs on developing its Machine Learning algorithm, including UCL, King’s College London and AUEB’s NLP group.

The company's aim is to reach human performance for understanding single sentence causality, as well as to visualise this evidence with network graphs.

We take the initiative to do more, better, every day. We put in 110%, even when no-one’s looking. We are dedicated team players, who own our actions and our mistakes.
  • Perseverance - Growing a company 3x every year is hard. Very hard. Processes are constantly breaking. Change is frequent. It takes effort and grit. If there is no way forward, we make one. We push through setbacks with patience and determination. We stay focused no matter what happens, and challenge ourselves to always go the extra mile and reach our goals. We are tenacious problem solvers.
  • Personal Growth - Every day, we strive to become better versions of ourselves. In every challenge, we see an opportunity to be faster, smarter, stronger. We are introspective. We are energised by a love of learning new things and applying ourselves to new situations and new challenges. We are restlessly curious and ask ‘why?’ and ‘so what?’ constantly. We’re relentless self-improvers.
  • Fellowship - We are confident, but not arrogant. Honest, but not cynical. Hungry, but not selfish. Mutual respect and trust fuels our high-performing team. When we lean in, pull together and lift each other up, great things happen. We care about and inspire each other to be the very best we can be.
  • Ambition - Exceptional results require extraordinary ambition. We tirelessly pursue our mission. We set obsessively high standards and continue to raise the bar. We never stop innovating. We respectfully challenge existing solutions when we see a new angle to an old problem. We don't believe good enough is ever good enough.
