L2F is a Swiss technology company based on the EPFL innovation park operating since 2017.
Heavily active in mathematical research, the goal of L2F is to improve the quality of state-of-the-art Machine Learning and Optimisation tools by incorporating concepts from algebraic topology and geometry (topological learning). In partnership with EPFL's lab for topology and neuroscience, recipient of a 550K Innosuisse grant, L2F makes a selection of its Topological Learning functions available open source through a Python library (Giotto).
Commercially, L2F's business model is an "open core" one, as it licenses commercial software modules to corporate clients. L2F's commercial modules were built using its core technology (Giotto) as well as its B2B client data and expertise. L2F currently licenses 8 different software modules to bring impactful solutions to corporate, societal and environmental problems.
Modules include image segmentation, churn analysis, demand forecasting, logistical optimisation, B2B market assessment...etc. To day, L2F licenses a dozen of modules to world famous corporations.
One of the long term ambitions of L2F is to specialise in high impact solutions that have a positive impact on our environment. Two of our current projects qualify in that regard in the maritime shipping and agri-tech industries.
L2F counts 30 employees and has raised CHF 3M in Series A funding and 650K in governmental grants.
