About CB Insights

What We Do

CB Insights is a fast-growing technology company based in NYC initially funded by the National Science Foundation. Our team comes to work every day to build technology that helps corporations guess less and win more.

We aggregate and analyze massive amounts of data and use machine learning, algorithms and data visualization to help corporations replace the three Gs (Google searches, gut instinct and guys with MBAs*) so they can answer massive strategic questions using probability not punditry.

Questions Like:

Which disruptive companies should we worry about?
Which emerging trends could kill us?
What new markets should we enter?
What is our competitor's strategy?
Who should we acquire?
Who should we invest in?
Who is our next customer?
Who are the S&P 500 of tomorrow?

We mine terabytes of data and knowledge contained in patents, venture capital financings, M&A transactions, hiring, startup and investor websites, news sentiment, social media chatter, and more.

Our software algorithmically analyzes this data to help our clients see where the world is going tomorrow, today.

We're Hiring

We're doubling the size of our team this year and are looking for teammates to join us. We tend to like people who are great at what they do and who can be described with the 4 H's - happy, helpful, humble and hungry.

Here are a few more data points to help nudge you over.

  • We are growing by 100%+ per year.
  • We are #560 on the Inc 5000.
  • We are working on some insanely hard problems.
  • We were revenue-funded for our first 5.75 years (translation: we're a real company). We raised $10 million in VC in late 2015.
  • We were cited by the media 2100+ times last year.
  • We run the tech industry's most popular newsletter with over 160,000 subscribers (and adding 1,200 new subs per week).
  • We have lots of really smart customers fired up about our product and our vision.
  • We were named 1 of the 15 enterprise companies to watch in NYC
  • We are a Founding Partner of CSNYC whose mission is to ensure all of NYC's 1.1 million public school students have access to a high quality computer science education.

We think the world would be better if fewer big decisions were made on the basis of the 3 G's - Google searches, Gut instinct and Guys with MBAs.
