Dr. Uri Kartoun is the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Stockato, LLC, a cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) company. Founded in August 2011 by Kartoun, an industrial engineer, and his father and electrical engineer, David Kartoun, Stockato developed a classification technology that was utilized to develop several financial search engines. The search engines are very different from ordinary screeners or other financial search engines provided by investment institutions such as Fidelity/Schwab or by web-based services such as Google Finance/Yahoo! Finance, and banks. New mathematical models and machine learning algorithms were developed to support Stockato’s engines. Stockato’s vision is to be a one-stop portal by including all of the currently existing financial instruments.
