    About Us

    Starcount is a Data Science company, blending proprietary technology and machine learning with a deep expertise and pedigree in data-based insights.  Expert in the science of purchase and intent, we hand our clients the tools and power to take control of their data, to improve customer understanding and transform business performance.

    Businesses and organizations across industry sectors rely on data to stay relevant and fuel growth. Most companies understand just two dimensions of data: who their customers are and what they’ve bought. They struggle to truly understand and capitalise on the sheer volume of information at their disposal. Our understanding of emotional analytics makes us different. Fuelled by diverse datasets, we work with clients to rapidly navigate and map their customers and their passions, predicting future buying behaviour. We then embed that knowledge throughout their business, giving clients the tools and power to make the most effective use of their data.

    Our founders, Clive Humby and Edwina Dunn pioneered this at dunnhumby and over the past 15 years have championed functional loyalty with the biggest retailers and consumer goods organisations across the world.
