San Francisco-based startup Sentropy builds contextually aware AI tools to protect online communities from hate and harassment.
Sentropy’s goal is nothing short of a safer, more positive and more constructive internet for everyone. The company builds contextually aware AI tools to protect online communities from the deluge of online hate and harassment.
Despite starting with an AI platform capable of securing online communities, Sentropy faced a significant hurdle: the need to rapidly scale its team in the highly competitive Silicon Valley environment, where typical recruitment cycles move slower than its ambitions.
The company's co-founder, John Redgrave, sought more than just engineers. He needed a partner who could help envision, design and deploy software projects of varying magnitudes. He needed a partner like Loka.
Loka stepped in to fill the talent gap, providing cross-functional resources and a robust roster of Solution Architects, Backend Engineers, Frontend Engineers, Designers and Project Managers. Loka became a natural extension of Sentropy, offering more than manpower. We provided strategic insight and guidance while adapting to Sentropy’s workflow.
“Loka’s flexibility and breadth of capabilities are incredibly valuable to any firm, especially a fast-growing startup like Sentropy.”
Our collaboration went beyond the traditional role of a partner. Loka’s people were there every step of the way, helping Sentropy envision, design and execute software projects of varying sizes. They assisted in enhancing the front-end design and usability of key products, leading to enterprise product launches, positive feedback from Sentropy's customers and boosting the company's confidence to increase its scope of work with the Loka team.
Loka’s partnership enabled Sentropy to shorten its time to market in building and refining key products, accelerating its growth and facilitating product-market fit.
The partnership between Sentropy and Loka exemplifies the importance of startups finding the right partner to scale effectively and efficiently. With a shared goal and the right skills, they can create solutions that make the internet a safer place.
