SiSense wins ‘Take the H.E.L.M.’ contest and its $250,000 prize

New York City Economic Development Corporation recognizes Israeli Big Data Analytics firm as most promising company.

SiSense, the Big Data Analytics Company, has announced that it is winner of the global “Take the H.E.L.M.” competition, along with its $250,000 prize. The win comes just days after SiSense CTO Eldad Farkash won the World Technology Award for his invention of In-Chip big data analytics.

SiSense helps business users make sense of big data without the need for a data science team or expensive hardware to deploy. Its unique In-Chip technology can analyze 100X more data at 10x the speed of traditional in-memory solutions.

SiSense recently opened its North American headquarters on Wall Street in Lower Manhattan. The company counts among its customer’s global brands including Target and Merck, as well as Wix.

More than 300 companies from the US and around the world applied for the H.E.L.M. award. The judges were looking for companies that could contribute most to the economic development of Lower Manhattan.

“We are honored,” says SiSense CEO Amit Bendov. “Lower Manhattan is a fantastic place to run a hyper-growth global business, with excellent transportation, plenty of affordable office space, an under-utilized talent pool, and proximity to the world’s largest companies.

“The competition is part of an incredible effort to revitalize Lower Manhattan after 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy,” added Bendov. “With our tremendous growth and high demand for our big data analytics solution, we look forward to creating hundreds of new jobs.”
