After working for the Jamie Oliver Group, David Benigson founded Signal in 2012. His belief was that artificial intelligence would change the way businesses everywhere accessed information. 

Since then, David has led Signal through multiple rounds of funding as the company has grown totalling £7.6m. The latest - a £5.8m fundraising announced in December 2016 - saw firms including MMC Ventures and Hearst Ventures invest in Signal. 

In January, David was named as part of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Europe list for 2017 (Media category), pinpointing the entrepreneurs and leaders who are changing their industries. Signal has won numerous awards including KTP Best Partnership 2015 and Bloomberg Business Innovators 2016.
