What’s in a word? A lot if you’re a business. The words you choose today are the difference between enhancing your company’s mission and values or turning potential customers away. The team at Pluralytics knows this, which is why we created the only content intelligence solution dedicated to values-based language.
Former Public Radio International executives Alisa Miller and Rick Byrne, along with technologist Morteza Nia, founded Pluralytics in March 2020. We are passionate about helping brands build consistency in their communications and creating more meaningful connections with customers, employees, and investors.
We work with leading brands, including Best Buy and Great Clips, to ensure their words resonate. Our groundbreaking technology also helps smaller brands uncover what their brand voice is — or should be — so they can harness the full power of every business opportunity.
Our hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. Pluralytics was chosen by the prestigious Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) to be a part of their highly competitive, seed-stage program for startups that employ innovations in technology and business models to deliver significant improvements to economic productivity and human welfare.
So far, we’ve analyzed millions of words and phrases… and we’re just getting started.
