A Brief History of nPlan

nPlan was founded by Dev and Alan in 2017, with a mission to unlock a trillion dollars of new project value through data-derived forecasting. In his previous role at Shell, Dev saw the pain experienced by Project teams when trying estimate their project and forecast risk. It was nearly impossible to know, ahead of time, what might happen to the project as it was executing. When they met on the Entrepreneur First accelerator program, Alan's combined experience in Finance and Machine Learning provided a unique angle on Risk Management and Forecasting. They collected a dataset of tens of thousands of past projects, and used this to build models that forecast the outcomes of future ones.

Today, nPlan has almost 30 clients across 8 countries who trust us to highlight risks and opportunities in their projects, saving them millions by preventing delays that would have otherwise been incurred. But our ambition doesn't stop there. Together with our amazing team we're working flat out to achieve our vision - building a world where ambitions are no longer limited by our understanding of risk.
