Trying to identify startup companies in a given industry or their investors can be a challenge. Much of the information is available on the web, in tiny bits and pieces here and there. CB Insights is a proprietary market intelligence platform that collects and analyzes this information into a easily accessible package, with powerful data visualization tools. This session will start with an introduction to the platform and then quickly move into more advanced features and use cases.

Join Entrepreneurship Librarian Carey Toane for a deep dive into this database, its tools and functionality, and how you can get your startup data added to the platform. Part of University of Toronto's Entrepreneurship Week. Join us for refreshments in the Gerstein Science Information Centre or via link from remote location. Note: If you wish to participate via remote location please contact carey.toane@utoronto.ca by Tuesday, March 21.
