We are working with Pitchbook, a company that provides financial database and platform for Private Equity and Venture Capital professionals. VCs today spend more than 20% of their time searching for the right opportunity to invest in. For that, they have to look at thousands of companies, more than 100 KPIs. To make this process easier and less time consuming, we made Investoscope, which applies machine learning to cluster similar companies according to different KPIs and augments Pitchbook’s abilities to provide data with intuitive and intelligent UX. Using Investoscope, users can better understand volatile markets when making crucial investment decisions
