In this article, Valerie Gombart, CEO of Hi Inov – a VC for innovative tech companies – gives her list of the five most promising startups that she recently discovered. The following is an extract of her article:


“Azalead is the first international marketing analytics platform for B2B, transforming the way companies win new business. Azalead’s proprietary real-time company ID technology identifies the names of the companies that visit a website.”


Why did you choose it?


“This mobile solution that identifies anonymous visitors who pass through a website and without normally leaving any trace, allows sellers to recall real-time potential prospects. An online contact form, used to find less than 1% of the traffic, but Azalead raises this metric to 20%. Nick Heys, CEO, is also the founder of Emailvision, sold in 2010, which I had funded at the time.”


Valerie Gombart, an expert with 15 years experience in venture capital, she has funded 25 young innovative companies with private equity funds.
