Here’s why…

  • Universities and other research institutions are proven sources of innovation in many tech sectors. If you’re looking for high-tech startups with strong intellectual property, start your search here.
  • Often, early-stage startups don’t show up in traditional venture databases for quite some time, especially if they’re operating in stealth mode. Our analysts have the sources to identify, vet and track these startups, so you get accurate data.
  • We understand how time consuming it can be to research breakthrough technologies or conduct a thorough competitive analysis. That’s why we include more than just basic company and funding information in our startup listings. You’ll find that our commentary and ratings are a valuable piece of the puzzle that makes your job easier.
