  • " believes technology is key for differentiation in the venture capital industry. We partner with Lean VC to integrate additional data into our own proprietary system, improving our visibility over potential investments." 

    Amure Pinho, Founder / CEO
  • "We kept hiring associates to comply with growing deal flow until we started using Lean VC's solution to process every new application. For a cost equivalent of one associate, it drops initial calls and helps our team quickly detect false positives."

  • "Questum is an M&A office supporting startup founders in their journey from growth to exit. We use Lean VC technology to accelerate our screening process and help plan for clients' liquidity towards a potential exit."

By quickly clustering similar companies, we can now proactively approach them or treat their requests without feeling overwhelmed or understaffed."
