Dr.John is an active angel investor for start-ups related to food technology and healthcare. Mostly his preference is to invest in early-stage technology start-ups. He mainly expects to invest in the start-ups which are more disruptive in nature, should have a quick solution to the problem which already exists and how those start-ups are going to overtake the competitors who exist in the market.
To be more efficient enough to find the right start-ups with more information he was looking for a fast and dynamic application to explore all the start-ups at one place.
John says that, even though google is a wonderful platform for many things in this world, it fails to provide the right results when it comes to search for start-ups. As an investor john has spent lot of his time on google research.
He finds many applications like CrunchBase, CBinsights, Skopai and StartupLynx. All These applications saves your time involved with google platform to collect the data where you have to go through random Wikipedia articles to find companies that interests you. He decided to go ahead with StartupLynx to start his research and also he has made a several research test to compare the StartupLynx search and the google search.
StartupLynx is a developed start-up search engine and it helps to identify the start-ups focused on particular technology categories more quickly and precisely.
Below table shows the search run on google and StartupLynx for finding food tech and healthcare start-ups. The result looks like this:
