Kensho Technologies, Acquired by S&P Global, Hits Early Milestone; Expands Private Company Data Offering to Clients

NEW YORK — S&P Global announced today that the Company has hit an exciting milestone in an alternative data linking project in collaboration with Kensho Technologies Inc. (“Kensho”), acquired by SPGI in April, and Crunchbase, a well-known destination for data on some the world’s most innovative companies. Leveraging Kensho’s machine learning algorithms, S&P Global Market Intelligence platform users can now access robust information on privately held companies licensed from Crunchbase.

“The Private Company Data space is an area of enormous growth and of high value to many of our clients who are particularly interested in being able to identify early stage, venture backed companies prime for acquisition or investment,” noted Mike Chinn, Executive Vice President of Data and Technology Innovation at S&P Global and President of S&P Global Market Intelligence. “Given the complexity and opaqueness of this data, we had originally expected project completion to take several months. I’m thrilled that in less than a month after our acquisition of Kensho, S&P Global has already hit this major milestone, strengthening our ability to meet the demand of clients at an accelerated pace as we become the go-to resource for comprehensive private company data.”
