Our value proposition
In finance, alpha (α) is a performance measure of the return on an investment compared against an industry benchmark index. However, in statistics, the significance level alpha (α ) is the probability of making the wrong decision when the null hypothesis is true. At Discover Alpha, we believe it is critical to analyze a problem holistically to solve today’s complex business challenges. Like in finance, we continuously strive to exceed (alpha) expectations for our clients in everything we deliver but also explore the possibility (alpha) of alternative hypotheses in decision making as in statistics.
