How Venture Capital Firms use Web Scraping to find the next Billion-Dollar Company
The goal of any Venture Capital firm is to invest in successful companies to get a return on their investments, so they are on a constant search for promising startups. Simply subscribing to a data feed or a data platform that everyone else has access to, doesn’t give firms an edge. That’s where web scraping comes in, bringing much more productivity in the research process. In this talk, Carles explains how Venture Capital firms use web scraping to make data-driven investment decisions, and how they rely on advanced data analytics in their processes.
