Owler catalogs its information into company profiles, and keeps a profile for each company it tracks. Profiles include basic company facts such as competitors, company size, founding date, funding and yearly revenue statistics, CEO name and approval rating in addition to more complex analysis like predicted company outcome and market intelligence about specific products.
The Owler team aims to empower busy business professionals to cut through the ever-more crowded world of company information with customized business-news alerts and dynamic company profiles all from one source, for free.
The product also uniquely provides previously inaccessible data through a sophisticated community polling system. Additionally, Owler is the first to offer a free iOS app with access to all this information from a mobile device.
Owler was started by serial entrepreneur and crowdsourcing pioneer Jim Fowler. Jim previously founded Jigsaw, which was sold to Salesforce in 2010 and was considered one of the most successful exits that year at $175 million.
Owler formally launched its platform June 25th, 2014. It is backed by Norwest Venture Partners and Trinity Ventures.
