About Quantopian

Quantopian is a crowd-sourced quantitative investment firm. We inspire talented people from around the world to write investment algorithms.

Quantopian provides capital, education, data, a research environment, and a development platform to algorithm authors (quants). We offer license agreements for algorithms that fit our investment strategy, and the licensed authors are paid based on their strategy's individual performance. We provide everything a quant needs to create a strategy and profit from it.

We encourage every community member to create a strategy for our daily contest. Doing so is the key step to get funding for your strategy.

Quantopian's community has nearly doubled year-over-year for the last four years and now numbers over 230,000 members. Quantopian’s members include finance professionals, scientists, developers, and students from more than 190 countries from around the world. The members collaborate in our forums and in person at regional meetups, workshops, and QuantCon, Quantopian's flagship annual event.

Quantopian is committed to the open source software community. We maintain and contribute to many projects, especially in the quantitative finance, scientific computing, and security spaces.
