Who we are

Vertical Knowledge is a growing software company based in Cleveland, backed by Innovation Endeavors and Providence Equity. We empower our clients to access and understand information that is publically available across the world. We capture and curate data for clients who demand excellence, innovation, and confidentiality. Everything we do, every app that we build is designed to bridge the gap between our clients and the insights they need to fulfill their mission.

We believe in four core values:

Make Clients a priority

Clients are our reason for being, and we are dedicated to their success. We are selective in choosing who we work with, seeking those who respectfully demand excellence and push the limits of our capabilities.

Culture matters

We care about our employees, their careers and their families. We expect everyone to value one another and exhibit the same effort, attitude, aptitude and accountability.

Give back to the Community

We are committed to giving knowledge, time and capital back to our community.

Karma is our moral compass

If we follow the first three values, we will have good Karma.


- Matt Carpenter, CEO
