Friday 18 September 2020

New York-based market intelligence provider CB Insights has acquired Netherlands-based software company Blockdata, tracking the global blockchain economy to synthesise blockchain and distributed ledger technology ecosystem, the company said.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

This is CB Insights' second acquisition following soon after their July 2020 acquisition of the assets of Dow Jones VentureSource.

Both M and A transactions provide CB Insights' clients with proprietary data and intelligence that will allow them to not just understand but ultimately make decisions about technology more quickly and confidently.

The conversation between the companies was kicked off by a cold email and came together fully virtually in less than three months.

As a result of the acquisition, CB Insights will also be opening an office in Amsterdam. Blockdata will remain a stand-alone product with its own team and will be available on its own as well as available to CB Insights clients.
