CB Insights collects data on private companies. They say their goal is to build a "Bloomberg" for private companies, venture capital firms and the investment banking community. The company just published a study on their website, called the "Venture Capital Human Capital Report." Using algorithms, they tracked Internet startups -- from January to June 2010 -- that received their first round of institutional funding, and collected data about the founding teams of those startups: age, gender, race, education. Melissa Block talks to CB Insights founder Anand Sanwal about the study and what it reveals about who Venture Capital firms are willing to fund in a shaky market.
