Estimize is the first crowdsourced financial estimates platform. Unlike other financial datasets, which are collected from the same pool of sell-side contributors, Estimize collects data from a much wider base of analysts. By crowdsourcing data from buy-side, sell-side and independent research analysts, alongside industry experts and academics, Estimize data is able to better represent the true expectations of the market. In fact, the Estimize Equity Dataset is found to be more accurate than similar sell-side only datasets over 69% of the time. Founded in 2011 by Leigh Drogen, as of November 2014 Estimize has over 35,000 registered users and 5,800 contributing analysts.
Forbes named Estimize one of the 9 hottest startups of 2013. Estimize CEO, Leigh Drogen, was named one of Forbes 30 under 30 in finance for 2013. Fast Company named Estimize one of the world's top 10 most innovative companies in finance for 2014.
