Hum Capital’s Intelligent Capital Market (ICM) is a proprietary platform that identifies investment opportunities based on a startup’s financials. Physical restrictions imposed by the pandemic bring the platform’s ability to spot value into stark contrast against more risky, qualitative investment factors.

The algorithm sees right through the charm and charisma exuded by founders in a real world pitch, and helps investors spot quantifiable value. After the pandemic subsides, expect many of the benefits realized to endure.
