Spark? Identify Demand

There are several signals to indicate demand for products. Who’s getting venture funded is a direct sign of the desire for certain services. Capturing these cues helped us identify growth areas in the 2020 ‘ Rebound ‘ analysis. However, those were just snapshots without context. Like any static PDF report or survey, these findings are observations that immediately depreciate in value after release. Especially in volatile times, real-time data in a historical context is crucial.

For example one of the few areas of identifiable growth was Tax. Why? Well, 134 payment tech providers collectively raised $6.6 billion in 2020 alone. Consider that each payment transaction they process needs the appropriate tax rate in accounting which none of them is able to provide. How do we uncover this fact with Spark? Tax Tech received 200% more seed capital year over year. Meanwhile, Contract Tech seed funding dipped 60% every year since 2018. Move the slider below from left to right and back to experience this dramatic effect.
