Information is power… when you can access and understand it. And for some like investors, startup founders, venture capitalists, and finance types, it is pure gold. Discovering investment trends and insights, finding companies and industries to bet on, analyzing the competition or finding your ideal investor…

With company formation, investment, and revenue estimate numbers that firms like Crunchbase provide, there really is no limit to insights and competitive advantages that can be gleaned from the data – if you are willing to put in the time and effort, often with all too much Excel!

That’s why we created Veezoo – to empower anyone to use and leverage data to make real-time, data-driven decisions – no code or complex spreadsheets required.

As you might know, Veezoo’s a Swiss🇨🇭 company, and proud of it! So, why not take a look at the Swiss venture landscape?

Let’s say for instance, you were a startup founder or VC looking to better understand the Swiss startup ecosystem. Well, with Veezoo’s intuitive chat-based analytics system, uncovering actionable market insights from Crunchbase’s mountains of data is as simple as asking Veezoo to: “Show the top 10 Swiss investors by the number of companies.”

But total funding only tells us so much. To get a better idea of the competitive landscape, let’s see how many funded companies there are in each industry.

And the thing about exploring data… sometimes you find outliers, like the fact that companies founded in 2011 greatly outperformed companies founded in any other recent year, at least in terms of estimated revenues.

Maybe that’s useful (like for evaluating venture fund returns), or maybe that’s just a fun fact. Either way, accidental insights and the fact that Waadt seems to be a better base for a healthcare startup than Zurich, Geneva (Genf), or Basel are exactly why we at Veezoo believe in democratizing data to empower individuals everywhere.
