Our Data Innovation Portfolio was created with two outcomes in mind, first, was to help support our portfolio companies in their 1st party data efforts, and second, could we support their top-of-funnel lead generation activities. What we learned was that we were woefully undermanned in both areas and began the process of solving both. Our investments in 5×5 solved the 1st party data issue, and our multitude of other investments has solved the top-of-funnel gaps. Resulting in the most powerful data co-op and top-of-funnel machine in the marketplace.
