Aneesh Chopra, formerly U.S. chief technology officer and Virginia secretary of technology, co-founded Hunch Analytics in October 2013 with the goal of helping organizations manage big data, the Washington Post reported Monday.
Steven Overly writes the Arlington, Va.-based start-up works with energy, healthcare and academic leaders to help their organizations leverage databases and algorithms for business decision-making.
Chopra was the U.S.' first-ever CTO and worked to implement public data and broadband service policies in that role.
He spearheads the analytics venture with Dan Ross, formerly managing director at business intelligence consultancy Claraview, according to Overly's article.
The Post reports that Hunch Analytics is currently hiring software engineers as well as web traffic and quantitative data analysts.
