In 2020, it’s no secret that practically anyone can launch a digital storefront from the comfort of their own home. 

Unfortunately, this also means that the web is positively inundated with digital storefronts and marketplaces, making it that much harder for you to get your business in front of your customers.

The company also looks at 10,000 public data sources in more than 100 languages. Its technology is used by both governments and companies, including many hedge funds, to predict emerging events.
