The Churned team

Life at Churned

Our story

In 2019, a data science professor, Francisco Blasques, together with his former Master student, Michiel Doornenbal, and Maarten Doornenbal decided to start Churned in Amsterdam. The mission was to make churn prevention accurate, accessible and without limitations.

Together with a team of like-minded talents, Churned was able to create a software that harnesses the true value of advanced data science technology to bridge the gap between machine learning and actionable business operations.

We aim to offer companies the opportunities to develop new insights based on foresights. Churned is the ultimate AI predictive analytic solution that answers to the business challenge - How do we stop customers from leaving while getting new ones?

What’s Churned?

The Churned team consists of highly skilled data scientists, data engineers, software developers and managers. Together we have built Churned AI, a data-driven customer management and retention platform that helps SaaS, B2C & E-Commerce companies take full control over the customer base. Churned AI provides a set of tools for customer success managers, sales and marketing specialists to work seamlessly to operate systematic work on client retention, CLV and upsell accelerations.

AI is the core of everything we do. Churned uses the real machine learning model that transforms your data into actionable retention operations and upsell machines.
