Businesses of all sizes were using Search.io (formerly Sajari) to build site search and discovery solutions that maximise e-commerce revenue, optimise on-site customer experience, and scale their online presence.
Search.io was serving billions of API requests every month on more than a thousand sites globally including BBC, Catch, Lockheed Martin, NSW Government, Rentpath, Sennheiser, Unity and many more.
Originally, Sajari came to Project F in 2021 to join the startup accreditation program and help set the foundations to create a diverse team. They employed just 19 people at the time and made full use of the Project F Startup Toolkit.
The toolkit included all foundational policies, plus templates, guides and tools that are critical for building a sustainably gender-balanced technology company.
The team at Sajari used the accreditation to full effect. Project F promoted their accreditation across their social channels, shining a light on its commitment to fostering gender diversity and inclusion. The foundational policies were embedded and the tools were used to achieve their planned goals. Then they rebranded to Search.io.

Within a year of implementing the Project F Startup Toolkit, Search.io had rebranded from its original name of Sajari and had been acquired for $100M+ by Algolio, the leading API-First Search & Discovery Platform.
Algolio is one of the largest search providers on the planet, processing trillions of queries from hundreds of data centres around the globe.
