How to you define 'Similar Companies'?

There are three elements that we consider to define similarity:

(1) Companies with similar technology / skills / expertise
(2) Companies that apply similar business models
(3) Companies that operate in the same sector or ‘ecosystem’

The similarity algorithm we have developed takes into account all of these factors. It combines Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Custom Algorithms, and is built on top of our own proprietary data set.
