South African candidates JP Kloppers and Craig Raw of BrandsEye have just become Endeavor Entrepreneurs after receiving the requisite unanimous vote at the Endeavor International Selection Panel (ISP) in Singapore. They are now part of an elite group of high-growth entrepreneurs with the biggest dreams, the greatest potential to create innovative companies that matter and grow, and the highest likelihood to inspire others.

BrandsEye assists its customers to accurately understand online consumer conversations. They realise that the volume of online conversations is too large for humans to hold in their heads; and the sentiments expressed too nuanced and varied for computers to interpret. It therefore developed a solution to this by building a crowd sourcing layer that teaches their artificial intelligence (AI) how to more accurately determine the relevancy and sentiment of online conversations.
