Making AI Inventory the New Industry Standard

Syrup's radical mission is to make use of the world's scarce resources. Get to know who we are, how we work, and why we’re pushing for a new, AI-powered standard.

We empower brands and retailers to run their businesses more effectively by recommending predictive inventory actions that drive profitability and efficiency. Our software helps our customers make faster, better, and more informed decisions while remaining in the driver seat.

AI Native, Mission Rooted

Syrup was founded in 2020 on a key realization: if we’re ever going to solve the waste epidemic plaguing the apparel and footwear industry, we need to get a lot better at predicting the future.

Expertise in econometrics, engineering, and fashion industry consulting paired perfectly with an exciting evolution: AI forecasting approaches were quickly outpacing statistical models, the status quo toolkit for analysts across industries.

Our first AI trials were so successful, it emboldened the team to dream bigger. What if we didn’t just create the world’s best demand forecast? What if we unified the entire fashion supply chain with a shared view of demand to stop waste at its source?

We Live by Our Values

Customer obsession

We always start with the customer and work backwards to deliver the best experience in the entire industry.

Katie Kenney

Beat the odds

We challenge one another to think big, and we champion the visionary, game-changing ideas required to build an iconic company.

Ben Bernhard

Delivering big, industry-changing impact requires top-tier execution and smart bets. We’re ideating, inventing, and delivering novel, differentiated, and yes, even elegant solutions.

Next-tier accountability

We understand that we are all jointly accountable for the success of Syrup and our customers.

Scott Hirsch

Dig the hole

We have a high sense of urgency about getting our work done, and we work both hard and smart to complete it.

Alex Khan
VP of Sales

We win on the strength of our ability to innovate. Yes, we need to deliberate and gain a degree of consensus before acting, but we never let ourselves get bogged down in over-analysis. Speed trumps perfection!

Expansive empathy

We always strive to approach situations in an expanded state vs. a contracted one so we can build empathetic, constructive, and effective relationships.

Dana Laufer
Director of People and Talent

Bringing your whole self to the table requires psychological safety. Because we genuinely care for one another, we enter every conversation with an open mind and willingness to learn!
