Oddup is a data driven research platform that gives you analytical information on startups. We give ratings and a curated view on the potential success of a startup.
We have a unique proposition as we fill the gap for rating startups and whether you are an individual or a professional investor looking at investing in a startup, we are an essential resource providing you with analysis so that you can pinpoint potential high return start-up investments.
From a start-up’s product, growth and investors, to its expected future outcome and valuation, we evaluate the potential risks of startups. With a success rate of 99.3% of companies rated on Oddup, we are the world’s leading start-up rating system.
An investor’s relentless pursuit in finding a startup that returns high multiples has led to lengthy and complex Excel spreadsheets. While Excel based due diligence methods can help angel investors assess the “investability” of a startup, it is still a long and tedious process which can take in excess of 3 months. On the flip side, angels may follow the herd and invest where the most prominent investors are putting their money.
This is why we developed our algorithm and rating system that provides analysis regarding the market potential of new startups success. The Series A crunch is real. There are an enormous number of companies being created each year. Ultimately, many of them are competing for the same Series A money.
Our customer list which includes investors, media companies, investment banks and high net worth individuals, their startup ratings, current and expected future valuations of ventures, trends and research that have made them Series A ready.
