    Revealing skills, aptitude and progression

    Zeki is changing the landscape of science talent discovery. Our novel methodology enables those that invest in science to discover, engage and fund the most promising minds, creating a more diverse talent pipeline and accelerating the progress of human innovation. 

    Zeki reveals the skills, aptitude and progression of individual researchers, not just their academic record. By focusing on future potential, Zeki breaks with a 60-year tradition of relying on backward-looking citation methods.

    Talent isn't a one size fits all solution

    Our unique methodology enables those that invest in science to find the exact talent with the knowledge and skills they need. We have identified specific behaviours and milestones that matter in science careers and paired these with open access data to form novel datasets. 

    This allows Zeki to offer a multi-dimensional portrait of an individual’s progress and potential. Investors and recruiters can dive into the details and draw out key skills that are valuable to them when finding talent.

    Investing in the future

    At Zeki, we believe in investing in the future. There are millions of scientists across the world, but only a small percentage have access to funding. A lot of this comes down to connections, location and the number of publications in their arsenal. Our approach gives greater visibility to those who are creating the future, beyond just the established players.

    By putting top-tier emerging scientists into the view of those investing and recruiting, we aim to drive better science forward, faster and pave the way for more diverse breakthroughs in key scientific disciplines. 

    By focusing on future potential, we enable clients to have a first-mover advantage on rising talent and be among the first to bring to reality novel ideas that challenge the world's most immediate, pressing problems.
