173 is the number of times one can go between the earth and the sun in a day, travelling at the speed of light. Our company is founded on the values of speed, transparency & finding the quickest route to value creation. The concept of light just felt appropriate.

Our founding team members met whilst working at Bumble, where we saw first-hand the enormous value and knowledge that analytics brings but also the pains and challenges along the way. We wanted to share our knowledge and help more companies make the most out of their data gold mine and decided to form 173tech.
