About Delphia

Delphia is building the world's first investment strategy anyone can improve with their data. We select stocks to a portfolio by analyzing trends in the data and the market.

We are building a new kind of company that re-thinks the value of privacy, data rights, and fiduciary responsibility in order to ensure your data is always working for you — like your money.

Whether we're identifying trends or educating people on how their data can be used to make better investment decisions, people at Delphia are socially-minded creatives at heart. Our teams are continually iterating, solving hard problems, and collaborating to generate new forms of value and economic returns for our users (we call them “members”, in fact). Working together, we want people to realize the true value of their data — and we're just getting started.

Delphia is growing! We currently have 80 people in multi-disciplinary teams located around the world. The company was founded in 2018 and is a graduate of Y Combinator and the Creative Destruction Lab. We’ve raised three rounds of funding and approximately $80 million to date.
