Company discovery system

VentureRadar crawls more than 5 million websites per month to discover new companies and track the progress of already known companies. We process this information using big data analytics, proprietary algorithms, machine learning and expert human interpretation.

Our search engine and custom search services are both underpinned by this system:

Our search engine uses this system to pro-actively discover, rank and track companies in popular innovation and technology domains;

For custom search projects, our analysts 'tune' this system so it can be used to rapidly screen and identify large volumes of potential candidates in your specific areas of interest.

We crawl more than 5 million domains per month, extracting information about companies and signals of their progress. Our team oversees data quality and enriches the data when required.
