The opportunity to marry data, sound thinking, and systematic process is being realized today in almost every industry. At Euclidean, our focus is squarely on applying this opportunity to long-term equity investing. We devote our energy to seeking history’s best lessons for evaluating the ‘goodness’ and underlying value of individual companies. Then, by managing a fund that embeds these lessons into a systematic investment process, we protect our investors against unproductive human behavioral biases.
Michael and John met in 1991 at Williams College in Massachusetts while pursuing their undergraduate degrees in Geology and History (Mike) and Mathematics (John). Their shared enthusiasm for business and technology soon led to a friendship and business partnership that developed over the subsequent twenty years. In particular, after both spending their first year out of college working in the business consulting industry, they realized that the Internet had the potential to completely alter the cost, sophistication, and accessibility of business software such as human resources, finance, and sales force automation applications. This led them to co-found Employease, one of the first Software-as-a-Services companies. Mike and John built Employease over ten years, leading it to 36 straight quarters of revenue growth prior to the company’s acquisition by ADP for $160 million. Today Mike and John manage Euclidean Technologies, a pioneering investment management firm that uses cutting edge statistical computing to identify individual companies as long-term investments. After building a single company for over a decade, Euclidean allows John and Mike to engage their enthusiasm for and knowledge of businesses to the investigation of many companies in diverse industries.
