A Year of Record-Breaking Expansion and Exciting Startup Projects


2023 was a watershed year for entrapeer, marked by several groundbreaking achievements that have not only expanded our capabilities but also reinforced our position as a leader in the realm of corporate innovation.

Our platform has grown dramatically in size, but also in depth and capability, with some major milestones that paint a vivid picture of our progress.


Diverse and Robust Use Case Database


Our commitment to enriching our database bore fruit spectacularly this year. We added over 50,000 new use cases, each a beacon of potential, unlocking new vistas of innovation. This expansive library has become a cornerstone for enterprises and startups alike, offering a diverse range of real-world applications for emergent technologies.


Broadening Enterprise Engagement


This year, we were thrilled to welcome 45 new enterprise clients into the entrapeer fold. Each new partnership is a testament to the growing trust in and reliance on our platform, further broadening our influence and impact in the corporate sector. These collaborations are not just business transactions; they are alliances in the truest sense, paving the way for transformative innovation.


Dynamic News Processing


Keeping pace with the ever-evolving tech landscape, we processed over 400 news items daily. This herculean task ensures that our insights remain not only relevant but also prophetic, keeping our clients a step ahead of the curve. It’s a relentless pursuit of knowledge that keeps our platform dynamic and our clients well-informed.


Startups Ecosystem Growth


Our network witnessed exponential growth, now encompassing over 3 million vetted startups. Each of these startups is a potential game-changer in its domain, armed with innovative ideas and the zeal to disrupt the status quo. Our platform acts as a crucible where these bright sparks find the fuel they need to ignite.


Surge in Research Output and Speed


Q4 of 2023 marked a significant leap in the capabilities of our research team. Not only did we expand the team, but we also witnessed an unprecedented acceleration in their output culminating in a remarkable count of 20 in-depth market research reports released in December alone. This uptick in productivity is a clear indicator of our enhanced capability to provide timely, comprehensive insights that empower our clients with the most current and actionable market intelligence for strategic foresight.



Entrapeer’s impressive growth transcends mere numbers; it is a narrative of our unwavering commitment to fostering a culture of innovation and excellence. It’s a journey that has seen us not only grow in size but also in our ability to make a tangible impact on the way enterprises and startups collaborate and innovate.

First things first, entrapeer took a significant leap in enhancing the depth and quality of its company data. We’ve meticulously upgraded our company profiles to offer a more comprehensive view of each organization, including in-depth financial data, and to fuel informed decision-making. 

What sets entrapeer apart is our method of population – these profiles are continuously updated via an active data stream. This ensures that the information you access is not just complete but also current, reflecting the latest developments and financial standings.

Semantic Search: Navigating the Innovation Landscape with Precision

Navigating the immense wealth of content on entrapeer’s content-rich platform can be a daunting task, especially when searching for actionable data on emergent technologies. 

Traditional keyword-based searches often limit the scope of discovery, confining users to specific titles and phrases, and consequently, restricting their access to the full breadth of market insights. Recognizing this limitation, we’ve embraced semantic search technology, a game-changer in how searches are conducted and results are matched. This approach goes beyond mere keywords, focusing on the context of your query, thus offering a more intuitive and comprehensive way to unearth valuable insights.

Our revamped search functionalities are designed to cater to the diverse needs of our audience:

Entrapeer Search offers enterprises an unparalleled ability to explore use cases relevant to their specific markets. This feature provides a strategic advantage in identifying true competitors and uncovering potential collaborations or new ventures. Innovation teams can delve deep into market reports for a comprehensive understanding of their industry landscape, empowering them with knowledge for strategic planning and execution.

Meanwhile, Entractive Search introduces a novel, visual approach to exploring the complex and diverse data available on the entrapeer platform. This feature is particularly beneficial for startup projects and accelerators, providing a dynamic overview of market relationships and highlighting potential areas for innovation and growth.


Instant Market Insights: Real-Time Data for Real-Time Decisions


Our new Instant Research capability, utilizing state-of-the-art AI tools, elevates the process of delivering rapid, personalized market analyses. This feature meticulously browses company websites, news hubs, and other proprietary data sources to find the most reliable and relevant information, ensuring each report is both comprehensive and factually sound. 

For enterprises aiming to stay at the forefront in rapidly evolving industries, these insights are invaluable. Instant Research streamlines the scouting process, presenting findings directly on a personal dashboard. This enables CIOs and innovation teams to swiftly and strategically respond to shifts in use cases and company strategies, keeping them well-informed and one step ahead in the market.


Entrapeer for Startups: Accelerating Qualified Lead Generation


With the imminent launch of Entrapeer for Startups, we are set to offer unprecedented resources for the startup ecosystem. Specifically, the startup-focused projects and features that kept us occupied for much of last year include:

But don’t worry: entrapeer does the heavy lifting by matching you with the best investors based on your startup’s use cases and business goals.

The Competitor Hub and in-depth company profiles will be instrumental for startups and VCs in understanding the competitive landscape, tracking investment trends, and identifying collaboration opportunities.

This holistic approach to innovation intelligence is designed to foster synergies across our diverse audience, from the C-suite in global enterprises to the dynamic world of startups and investors.
