We used the CB Insights database to help you determine the companies to check out at CES.

With the CES coming up on January 5th, we decided to examine the thousands of exhibitors at the show and determine which of them are some of the key companies to watch. After scraping the exhibitor page on the event website, we evaluated the companies on the CES 2017 list using our Mosaic algorithm, CB Insights’ predictive algorithm for measuring the health of companies using financial and nonfinancial signals.

After evaluating the companies on the list, we determined that the 10 companies below are some of the top high momentum companies to pay attention to. These companies run the gamut of industries and use cases, from an automated sous vide cooker to a freight forwarding company to a 3D printer maker.
