Marc Andreessen once said: “Most of the big breakthrough technologies seem crazy at first… It has to be a radical product. It has to be something where, when people look at it, at first they say, ‘I don’t get it, I don’t understand it.”
Using CB Insights’ platform, we set out to uncover and define the most bleeding-edge trends taking shape across the technology industry today.
