My client developed and markets software solutions for retrieving
accurate information from corporate databases and the Internet, using
advanced computational linguistics and natural language processing
(NLP). They use the power of spoken and written language--the words we
use every day-to define and find desired information.

Their solutions use language and understand concepts in context. They
dramatically boost the accuracy of information retrieval over key word
search engines, overcoming their frustrating limits. 

A twenty-year-old company, they are shifting focus from project-based

backing for this new initiative, they are not a start-up, but a
'restart'. Based in Europe, they plan to aggressively expand in North
America, where they have significant and growing revenues.
