Our Mission

Provide information technology that delivers open access education within a fast, reliable and safe search environment.

WikiEye is a private technology firm based in Sofia. It was founded in 2013 with the objective to remove the barriers to education, promote online learning and reading and give all persons equal learning and professional development opportunities regardless of their social, cultural or economic backgrounds while respecting fundamental rights to privacy, intellectual ownership and safety.

Our founders are seasoned executives with a diverse range of nationalities, experiences with leading investment banks and financial institutions, industry backgrounds and expertise across a broad range of disciplines such as fixed income structuring, credit risk management and analytics as well as technology solutions for government and commercial applications.

WikiEye focuses on two primary products that allow us to take advantage of several opportunities in the fields of Data Analytics and Information Security:

Editorial Search Engine. The project aims at exploiting the opportunity of redirecting the searches towards authoritative and safe repositories of information in the educational fields (government, university research sites, foundations, online libraries). The formula is quite simple: instead of applying filters on an unbridled amount of online content, we have selected and vetted all the underlying sources of information that are shown through the search engine. The result is the exposure only to rated online resources that provide relevant and original content with great information quality. This project is requiring a considerable investment of time and resources for the building of the underlying database and for the development of all search engine functionalities: DB management, proprietary search algorithms and knowledge graphs, data encryption and security. The search engine shall operate by serving search results originated from open access online resources (websites, documents, books, online courses, documentaries and movies) as well as results from selected online media.

NPL Digital Solutions. We are currently pursuing several opportunities with European banks in the digitalization of loan portfolios (performing and non-performing) and creation of online, digital platforms. We are combining our credit, risk management and risk analytics expertise with our search engine technologies in assisting European banks that are willing to build accessible loan databases that would not only eliminate the information asymmetries between the loan sellers and buyers, but would also improve the quality and diversity of loan data, loan servicing and assets valuation metrics. Our team’s analytical insights, industry knowledge and technological expertise are central to the success of this product.

WikiEye has a strong team of analysts, engineers and professionals plus a dynamic pool of contractors across various domains.
