ABOUT CB INSIGHTS
Our team comes to work every day to build technology that helps corporations guess less and win more.
We aggregate and analyze massive amounts of data and use machine learning, algorithms and data visualization to help corporations replace the three Gs (Google searches, gut instinct and guys with MBAs) so they can answer massive strategic questions using probability not punditry.
With backing from the National Science Foundation and venture capital investors, we mine terabytes of data and knowledge contained in patents, venture capital financings, M&A transactions, hiring, startup and investor websites, news sentiment, social media chatter, hiring activity, and more.
Our software algorithmically analyzes this data to help our clients see where the world is going tomorrow, today.
