Building tools for those solving the world's biggest problems.

Navigating information & scaling knowledge in new ways.

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 a way that enables smart workflows to build on prior work and knowledge.

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 and with a simple UI for organising information.

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.
