Tim Toner telling the Vesparum  Group brand story.
Draftable is part of the Vesparum Group.
Draftable was founded and is led by brothers Ben and Tim Toner, who maintain control and decision-making at the company. Ben brings the technical expertise (PhD in quantum physics from Caltech) while Tim brings the commercial acumen (previously an investment banker at Macquarie Group and Lazard). Draftable’s parent company, Vesparum Group, was founded in 2012 and has a long-term vision to unlock human potential by using AI and capital as a force for good. 

The Toner brothers do not return calls from VC or PE funds and instead bootstrapped the company to retain their vision’s independence and make choices based on long-term value, not short-term returns. 

Inspired by advances in human DNA sequencing, Ben recognised an opportunity to dramatically improve document comparison technology. The resulting approach surpassed existing standards and became the foundation for Draftable's world-class document comparison capabilities.

This is who we are.
