Our Origin

Enthought was created in 2001, when CEO Eric Jones was doing postdoctoral research in electrical engineering at Duke University. Eric recognized the potential of the Python scientific software stack to solve tough science problems and remove much of the drudgery experienced by technical experts. To harness this potential, in 2002 Eric gathered about 50 like-minded scientists at CalTech for what would become the first SciPy Conference.

Software Consulting

A commonality amongst science-driven businesses is providing a valuable business output, for example a material formulation on spec., a new drug, or a seismic analysis. From this business value starting point, we collaborate to reconceptualize processes, crafting scientific software and adapting infrastructure technology to not only deliver incremental gains, but expose new possibilities.
