Murat founded SONEAN in 2013 with his team, building on its sister entity Funds@Work AG (F@W)`s experience since 2002 in over 250 international projects in the wealth, and asset management industry with more than two dozens of international awards received for its consulting & unique intelligence. SONEAN was designated as „innovative young company“ in 2015 by the German Ministry for Economics and Energy and became part of Germany`s Excellence in Big Data campaign rolled out globally in 2016.
In April 2015 SONEAN launched a unique service called “Ecosystem Intelligence” and runs the largest private social network analytic capability in Europe and possibly beyond with its core team of employees, its SNA Lab (www.snalab.com), and its academic initiative called SNA at Work, connecting data in an unparalleled manner. By going beyond financial and non-financial data, SONEAN brings the social network perspective into corporate, lender, and investor related decision making. SONEAN, compared to F@W, is no longer just focused on the financial services industry but moves its capability to all sectors.
