In less than an hour, you helped us get past 300,000, and it continues to grow.
This makes us the largest tech newsletter out there.
I’m hoping we can get to 400k by the end of 2017. Here’s our growth over time (through June 30th).
I just wanted to say thanks on behalf of our entire team for helping spread the love for CB Insights. Our growth has largely been driven by our subscribers forwarding the newsletter to colleagues, friends, and tech nerds.
If you’ve ever learned something from any of our newsletters or gotten a chuckle from something we’ve written about, please tell someone you like or dislike about it, or send them this link.
Thanks again for helping us get to 300k.
Citi drives innovation using CB Insights
Citi recently used CB Insights for outreach in its Tech for Integrity Challenge (T4I), which received over 200 applicants from around the world. Following Demo Days with 100 finalists in Hyderabad, Abu Dhabi, Dublin, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, and Singapore, 6 winners were chosen for their solutions promoting integrity, accountability, and transparency in the public sector. Coming soon, one winner will be chosen as a T4I Game Changer.
Keen on genes
The genomics field not only deals with both technology/software and biology for enterprise uses, but also has a lot of consumer-facing applications (DNA testing kits, blood tests, etc.). This combination has attracted a wide range of investors, from both the technology side as well as the more purely biotech- and healthcare-focused funds.
Un, deux, trois
After two quarters in third place, France has narrowly pulled ahead of Germany in terms of dollar funding to tech companies in Q2’17. France has consistently ranked second to the UK in terms of quarterly deals to tech companies.
