Crowd Analyzer is an online social media monitoring platform that offers users a variety of tools that monitor people’s feelings about their brand through sentiment analysis. It supports Arabic sentiment analysis and can recognize and understand the different dialects.The company is based in Cairo, Egypt.
This idea for Crowd Analyzer was inspired by a discussion that took place between Ahmed Saad and Bahaa Galal around big data where Bahaa, who has natural language processing experience, mentioned creating an algorithm that understands Arabic. They took the idea to Startup Weekend Giza and won the best demo. They then evolved the idea and incorporated the social dimension. That decision was made social media’s strong growth in the region in mind, Arabic social media in particular.
Ahmed, who holds a bachelor degree in Engineering from Ain Shams University, had already founded an IT services startup 5 years ago and possesses four years of experience in project management and account management in multinational companies such as ArcelorMittal and Schindler. Bahaa, a fellow engineering graduate from Ain Shams, had served as CTO to Dare’n’Deal and Wuzzuf, both of which got acquired for a total sum of 20 million Egyptian pounds. Bahaa is the brain behind the platform’s natural language processing algorithm for the platform.
The company has received its first investment round in 2013 and they raised other funding rounds. Crowd Analyzer was a finalist at the Startup Demo Competition during ArabNet Beirut 2014 and won 1st place.
