Exciting newcomers in highly specialized technology domains
The EconSight company scouting and de-risking approach
Our company scouting approach provides a comprehensive overview of all relevant companies in a specific technology sector, offering you a list of potential investment targets and eliminating the need for exhaustive research and guesswork. It is also a major de-risking approach that compares each investment with the next best options.
Next-generation AI-based patent analysis
The scouting concept is based on our new AI with customised LLM (large language models) that uses textual technology descriptions to identify all relevant patents from more than 140 million patent full texts and more than 3.5 million companies worldwide. The iterative process is fast, precise and always verifiable.
The precision investing approach
The technology or market environment is developed based on textual concepts that are defined together with the client. A full-text analysis of all patents worldwide (+140 mio) with our AI-based approach identifies all relevant patents for the concepts – fast, precise, and verifiable.
Identification of competitive environment
The relevance of the company is calculated as the similarity of their patents compared to the technology concept. The closer to the core, the higher the similarity. Companies are further categorized into segments based on their primary activities in terms of relevant technological applications. Specialist companies with a small but relevant portfolio are positioned separately.
Identification of target companies
Based on the classifications, technology specialization and detailed company profiles, a list of potential target companies can be identified. Criteria also include general company dynamics, activities, and innovation quality. The same approach can be applied to identify potential exit partners.

Background – what do we do new, different and better?
500 curated technologies
A technology taxonomy consisting of 500 curated cutting-edge technologies, defined from a market perspective and not from a purely technical perspective.
Next generation AI-based patent analysis
We use AI where it makes sense and leads to better results. Intelligently linked with our technologies and based on more than 20 years of expert knowledge: innovation evaluation and scoring, grant predictors, enhanced patent searches, and risk analysis.
EconSight indicators are designed to get the best possible information out of patents: World Class Patents, Company Innovation Score, EconSight Patent Score, Global Tech Share, Specialisation Degree, Enabling Technology Environment, and time series data from 1990 to 2023
Business relevant patent scores
EconSight developed a technology-specific patent score that focusses on business relevancy in patent citations and “critical mass” country coverage, and specifically takes younger patents into account with AI-based grant and citation predictions.
