A Trusted Research, Technology, and Economics Partner

Founded in 2013, Silverthread was born from 15 years of joint MIT Engineering and Harvard Business School research and development. The company’s strong academic roots are the foundation of its technology that is trusted by clients today.


We have helped over 100+ commercial and government customers gain visibility into their software asset health and dramatically improve operational and financial outcomes.

Through years of extensive research, Silverthread has developed its own data vault of 6,000+ codebases, which coupled with its predictive analytics tools, provides strong statistical connections between technical health and agility, defects, system safety and security, developer productivity, risk/vulnerability and the ability to drive new revenues.

A grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), specifically the NSF I-Corps program, in 2013 provided the necessary springboard for the company in its product commercialization. Further R&D and commercialization was fueled by Phase I, II, and III Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards from the U.S. Air Force.
