Spotlight Feature: Dashboard API

Making predictions about startups is good, but letting everyone integrate predictions about startups in their apps is even better. And that’s because the real value of predictions is realized when we go beyond “predictive analytics” and start becoming “prescriptive”. In other words, it’s all about making predictive insights actionable. This is the reason why we are releasing our Dashboard API, to let you do just that. Now, all of our predictive scores about startups, investors, and areas, can be embedded into any of your apps and integrated into any of your decision-making processes. For example, you can now combine constant tracking of the performance and traction of your portfolio companies as well as those of your competitors in your own internal app, which also includes top secret financials for your portfolio companies. Currently, our Dashboard API is only accessible to subscribers of the Analyst Plan and our partners (Interested in a partnership? Get in touch with us!).

All of PreSeries, one API

Preseries.io (our API domain) gives you access to the following predictions: company search and company data, as well as the following resources: acquisition, deactivation, company, investor, IPO, patent, person, product, and round. Preseries.io conforms to the design principles of Representational State Transfer (REST). Preseries.io is entirely HTTPS-based. You can create, read, update, and delete resources using the respective standard HTTP methods: POST, GET, PUT and DELETE. All communication with Preseries.io is JSON formatted.

Predictions

Company related properties available via the PreSeries API.

The Company Search allows you to find companies in PreSeries based on preferences. The Company Data endpoint allows you to find information about all the company predictions made by PreSeries. The endpoint is available in two different modes: (1) one snapshot: data related to a specific snapshot. You need to choose between only_last_snapshot or snapshot_date as a query property. (2) time series: all company data points listed in chronological order. This is the default option if neither snapshot_date nor only_last_snapshot is informed. You can specify a time period using the interval property.
