Ingo Mierswa

Founder and President


RapidMiner—the industry’s top open source predictive analytics platform that is empowering organizations to include predictive analytics in any business process—began as a project of company founder Ingo Mierswa, when he was at the Artificial Intelligence Division of the TU Dortmund University in Germany. Today RapidMiner’s effortless solution makes predictive analytics lightning-fast for modern analysts, radically reducing the time to unearth opportunities and risks.

Mierswa is an industry-veteran data scientist who has authored numerous award-winning publications about predictive analytics and big data. Under his leadership RapidMiner has grown up to 300% per year over the first seven years. In 2012, he spearheaded the go-international strategy with the opening of offices in the U.S. as well as the UK and Hungary. After two rounds of fundraising, the acquisition of Radoop, and supporting the positioning of RapidMiner with leading analyst firms like Gartner and Forrester, Mierswa takes a lot of pride in bringing the world’s best team to RapidMiner.
