PredictLeads will now go through an intense 3-month acceleration program of workshops, one-to-one sessions and events in Amsterdam, starting off on 19th of February and ending with the Demo Day in front of hundreds of startup and tech influencers, mentors, partners, and investors on 17th of May 2018. They will be mentored by a network of entrepreneurs, top executives, and investors, and will have access to leading commerce companies in the Netherlands to validate and scale further. We will receive free office space, €15K seed money and support from Startupbootcamp partners, such as Amazon, Cisco, Ahold Delhaize, PwC, America Today and Rabobank, as well as over €500.000 in partners service and access to a network of Angels and VCs internationally for potential further investment opportunities.

We’re really excited to be given this opportunity. During the 3 month program our main goal is to use immense SBC business network to find new clients. We’ll be focusing on B2B companies that leverage Company Intelligence data in their products or services. We want to establish ourselves as the market leader in providing actionable Company Intelligence data to other vendors. Let’s do this!

Company Signals API

We started PredictLeads with the mission to find actionable business  data in public documents.

 

HISTORY

Categorized news articles about companies was our first offering, with which our partners were able to display highly relevant news to their customers. But quickly we saw even bigger demand for more structured business data.

The main issue was that there was no way to extract such data with our existing classification approach. For example, there was no way to know which company was acquired and which one did acquiring. Or, who was hired to which position within a company.

Although we knew the solution to the problem, we wanted to build something for the long term. Today, after 6 months of building systems, gathering training data and QA processes, we’re proud to finally launch Business Signals API.

 

FUTURE

At its core is PredictLeads Entity and Relationship Extraction System (PERES) which performs 3 steps:

  1. It starts with scanning millions of public documents every day.
    1. Public document examples: news articles, blog posts, SEC filings, job openings, PR releases, industry news etc.
  2. System then extracts 20 different types of entities from the those documents.
    1. Entity examples: organizations, persons, locations, money, job titles, business divisions etc.
  3. At the last step, it tries to identify relevant relationships between these entities.
    1. Relationship examples: acquisitions, personnel changes, investments, expansions, office closures, recognitions etc.

Well, actually, there’s a fourth step, human supervision. We know that machines are not yet fully reliable, so most of the relationships are still human approved for highest quality.

 

To get a better picture what types of data are we talking about, here are two examples of data in JSON format:

{
    "id":1656497,
    "type":"signal",
    "categories":[
      "launches"
    ],
    "title":"BMW launches ReachNow car-sharing service on Sep 19th 16'.",
    "body":"BMW will launch its ReachNow car-sharing service in Portland on Sept. 19, the car-maker announced today.",
    "domain":"bmw.com",       "url":"http://www.geekwire.com/2016/bmw-unveils-details-reachnow-car-sharing-launch-portland-next-month/",
    "found_at":"2016-08-15T02:00:00.000+02:00",

      "organizations":[

      ]
    }
  }

 

Or

    "type":"signal",
    "categories":[
      "invests_into_assets"
    ],
    "title":"Domino Printing Sciences Plc invests into assets : factory on Aug 18th 16'.",
    "body":"Cambridge-headquartered commercial inkjet printing business Domino Printing Sciences has opened its new £19m factory in China.",
    "domain":"domino-printing.com",
    "url":"http://www.insidermedia.com/insider/central-and-east/domino-printing-sciences-opens-chinese-factory",
    "found_at":"2016-08-18T09:44:26.000+02:00",

    "data":{
      "location":"China",
      "amount":"25332000",
      "assets":"factory",
      "date":"2016-08-18T09:44:26.000+02:00",
      "organizations":[
        "domino-printing.com"
      ]
    }
  }

Above are 2 of 30+ possible types of signals. Full list is available here: https://predictleads.com/docs/#signal

 

APPLICATIONS

Types of applications are (almost) endless, but I will list a few we had in mind:

  1. Sales Enablement Solutions: empower customers to know everything about their prospects’ business without Googling around.
  2. Predictive Lead Scoring: high quality buying signals should be core data for predictive models
  3. Account Based Marketing or Sales: enable customers to generate automated highly personalized and relevant messages to their existing or potential customers.

Our aim is to connect the top-notch tools with companies that will greatly benefit from using them.

To find the right companies for your products on which you work so hard we use machine learning algorithms on big publicly available data.

Since being best in one thing is the way to go when faced with multitudes of competition we’re now solving just one part of connecting you with companies.

It’s following up. It’s making that awkward contact a bit less awkward. We find you reasons why now is the time to reach out to your prospect. We find you things to say when you make a call to your long lost touch with a prospect. We first need to ignite the conversation. So we bring you the icebreaker.
