Founding Story


Venture Scanner was founded to fill a growing need for actionable research to power corporate innovation and startup scouting.



With a founding team of former entrepreneurs, corporate technologists, venture capitalists, and investment bankers, we knew firsthand the dearth of resources available for objective intelligence on startups markets. The incumbent research firms were covering existing technology markets not startups, the startup data dashboards provided company level profiles without context, and technology blogs were littered with clickbait headlines. We knew there had to be a better way. So we set out to build a research firm for the innovation age, one that provides a true and unbiased pulse on global startup activity.

To build the right research product for emerging technologies, we had to fundamentally reinvent research itself. And that is what we did. We threw out the static PDF format used by incumbent research firms, as a static format would not work for covering startup markets that are emerging and changing by the hour. We built a dynamic research product that is web-based, technology powered, and analyst guided. Our belief is that in the era of AI, research analysts should focus on guiding a technology powered process and on forming strategic insights, versus doing the underlying data aggregation and analysis that is better left to technology. And that is what we birthed, that is Venture Scanner, the research firm for the innovation age.

When you access any of our web-based reports, you can rest assured that you are getting the research needed to activate your corporate innovation process. Whether you are looking for insights to flow into your R&D and product development programs or you are looking to find the right strategic startups to explore partnerships with, you’ll have what you need.

Simply put, we cut through the noise and hype of the startup ecosystem, and give you the intelligence needed to compete and bring new innovations to market.
