XL Innovate Gets Into Politics

NYC-based GeoQuant announced that it has raised $4M in a Seed round from XL Innovate and Aleph. The startup offers a machine learning-based software that monitors geopolitical risk in real-time. “By combining our expertise in political science with cutting-edge technologies, we are the first company to systematically identify, quantify and track political risks in real time” – GeoQuant cofounder Mark Rosenberg, PhD. Bottom Line: must not have heard of Cytora, the London-based provider of real-time geopolitical risk analytics since 2014 that is backed by the venture arm of the University of Cambridge. This Cytora.

Bottom Line: a PR, as in Possibly Right.
