Lateral is the modern AI software for anyone who needs to rapidly navigate information across documents.

The new way to navigate information & scale knowledge

We founded Lateral in 2013 with a mission to empower people to quickly find the information they need. The world and technology is moving faster than ever before and yet reviewing and navigating information across documents is still a struggle. As is capturing expertise in such a way that lets individuals and companies create smart workflows that leverage their expertise, rather than constantly redoing the same work and making the same mistakes.

Lateral is the modern AI software for anyone who needs to rapidly navigate information across documents. For anyone that wants to supercharge their research with an AI assistant for finding information in complex workflows.

We are machine learning experts, have built our technology from the ground up, are obsessed with creating simple UX and delightful solutions to complex problems. We are an international team based in Berlin and Hobart.
