At HIVERY, our philosophy has always been that 'Data has a better idea™'. Being named one of the world's top 100 Retail Tech just validates that what we are doing with data is truly unique.

Whenever CPG brands and retailers talk about assortment and space, we are in the middle.  We work with 20 of the top 25 CPG manufacturers in the world and have delivered over $2B in incremental revenue for our clients” -  Jason Hosking CEO, HIVERY.

The selection was based on factors including patent activity, business relations, investor profiles, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic Scores, market potential, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.
