Our unfair advantage is using data, not intuition or a majority vote, to make all investment decisions. Just like the 2003 Oakland A's, who pioneered the Moneyball concept, we are adding a layer of data to an industry that has relied on gut and intuition for more than a century. Yes, gut and intuition is what the majority of funds use to invest $254 billion annually. Our data isn't just financials or downloads either; we rely heavily on behavioral and psychographic data as well.
Another benefit of data? It removes all bias from the investment process. At Connetic, 51% of our portfolio companies were founded by Women or Minority founders. The national VC average is between 6-8% . We clearly have a long way to go towards equality but we hope Connetic can be a driving force in bringing change to the industry.
