Our story

When we founded StageZero in 2016, we brought our roots from the gaming industry. We were dissatisfied with the lack of diversity in games and we wanted to create something better – but we realized pretty quickly that the data needed to do that just didn’t exist. 
So that got us thinking… and we decided to build the platform ourselves, to enable us to create the exact data we needed. Today we offer our customers the opportunity to harness the power of our platform too.
Investors quickly expressed interest and we raised a pre-seed round of $330 000 from business angels and Nordic Game Ventures. This allowed us to enhance our capabilities and expand our business on an international level.
The realization hit that the platform could be used to collect and label data for a far wider range of problems than just games. So the Forss brothers decided to evolve into the world of Machine Learning to provide data services.
The Forss brothers, Machine Learning and computer science graduates from the Universities in Finland, founded StageZero to create different genres of gaming apps. Realising that the data required to make such games simply didn’t exist, they came up with a new platform for creating the data.
