Grata is a software company built on ML/AI technology that uses company websites as the main source of truth. Grata users are within Corporate Development, Corporate Venture Capital, Private Equity, Search Funds, and Investment Banks.
Grata validates data through a fully automated machine learning system with no human supervision. Grata uses what they call "deep search" which is web text search that uses AI/ML to take information from a company's webpage. Each company requires at least two data points – the company name and website URL. This information is not validated or backed by human-in-the-loop machine learning, which often yields misclassified information.
Grata's belief is that news is noise so they solely capture data based on the text of a company's website. Oftentimes, this data is skewed toward how a company endeavors to market itself.
Grata captures some conferences and events, though the coverage is sparse and only covers more recent events. The lack of historical coverage means there's less insight to be garnered on market trends and company milestones.
