The KPMG Startup Trends Index is the result of a joint development by KPMG and Owlin.
It was inspired by the previously developed KPMG Technology Trends Index and built on the same premise: why write a static, quickly outdated view of a market when we can leverage technology and knowledge to give a real-time view into the market place? The unique combination of Owlin’s proprietary algorithms and KPMG’s insights on the market place allow us to continuously show a relevant and up to date index, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Startup Trends Index tracks patterns in the news over a period of 200 days and is continuously updated. Information from more than one million online sources (press releases, annual reports, magazines, forums, newspapers, news wires, etc.) is filtered through an algorithm designed by Owlin, which weighs articles on timeliness and relevance.
KPMG provides audit, tax and advisory services. We work for a wide range of clients: major domestic and international companies, medium-sized companies, non-profit organisations and government institutions.
The complicated problems faced by our clients require a multi-disciplinary approach that helps them to create order out of complexity. Our professionals excel in their own specialist fields while also working together closely to provide the added value that enables our clients to excel. In doing so, we draw from a rich source of knowledge and experience gained in diverse organisations and markets.
Owlin allows you to control the ocean of information that is the internet, instead of drowning in it.
Owlin scans roughly one million sources on the internet worldwide 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, finding news that is relevant to you. Through proprietary algorithms it filters news and grades it according to relevance and importance. The result? Faster and better news delivery presented in a way that allows instant decision-making.
