Alguru is small IT company specializing in building financial software applications. Alguru has currently one full time employee (CEO and founder Emil Ahlmann Østergaard) but will from time to time draw on free-lance resources when needed, based on an extensive network of highly skilled professionals from the industry and academia. Alguru covers all aspects in IT-projects, from analysis to implementation and support and maintenance. The company has specialized in building software applications that easily explain personal financial matters to the end user, despite the fact, that the underlying calculations often are quite complicated and necessitate extensive knowledge within economics and mathematical modelling. Alguru believes, that a close collaboration between academia and industry generates innovation and societal value. Furthermore, the company believes in openness and therefore strive to open source as many of their products as possible, making them available to the public.
