Startup Thinknum – Powerful Web Platform For Valuing Companies

Listen to this article

Thinknum is a tool for investors to collaborate on financial analysis. With Thinknum you can track markets and contribute your insights with users around the world. Below is recent interview with Gregory Ugwi Co-Founder of Thinknum:

Q: Gregory tell us please, what is Thinknum?

A: Thinknum is a web platform to value companies. Currently, analysts put a lot of work into deciding which companies to buy or sell, but there is no way for them to see how others have solved the exact same problem, so they end up constantly reinventing the wheel.

Thinknum aggregates financial data and provides an analytical platform that enables investors to create and share their financial insights. An analyst can view the work that others have done and modify it to suit his needs. The platform is free if a user’s financial models are public, and Thinknum charges a monthly subscription for the right to create private models.

Q: How would you present team behind Thinknum?

A: My Co-Founder Justin Zhen and I met playing soccer at Princeton University over eight years ago. After graduation, I worked as a strategist for Goldman Sachs while Justin worked for a hedge fund, but the two kept in touch. Thinknum is a manifestation of our observations on the trading floor, where we saw professional analysts emailing spreadsheets back and forth and updating data manually.

Q: How are you funded?

A: Thinknum has investments from Green Visor Capital and 645 Angels and is a member of the current batch at 500 Startups. We are raising additional funds by Demo Day of 500 Startups to expand our team and continue building features for our users.

Q: Who do you see as your principle target audience?

A: Our target users are investors who value companies and make buy/sell decisions based on that analysis, such as traders, investment bankers, and individual investors.

Q: Do you have any new features in the pipeline?

A: We are about to release private workspaces for institutional clients, where they can collaborate more efficiently on building financial models.

Q: What are your plans for the future?

A: Thinknum’s goal is to index the world’s financial information and become the platform for an investor to value any company in the world, from a Fortune 500 corporation to a private company in Bangladesh.
