Be the First to Try Zirra Alerts

It’s like a little AI butler whose only job is to bring you exactly what you asked for.

You’re probably a very busy person. We get it, and we’re flattered that you’re even reading this. So when you want info on major developments in a company, you want it now, right? With this in mind, we’re rolling out Zirra Alerts. No bull$#!t, no fluff, just updates on the factors that make or break a business. For free.

You choose a company, select the events you want to filter for, specify a date range (or don’t, it’s a free country), and voilà! All the news that’s fit to peruse, curated by the Zirra AI. It uses machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) to comb the web for phrases humans use to talk about changes in businesses. If you log in (it’s quick, painless, and free), you can subscribe to companies that matter to you using the filters you want, and get weekly updates delivered right to your inbox.   

In the olden days, when you wanted to keep up with the factors that make or break a company, you’d have to set an alert with a search engine. Let’s call it “Google.” With a Google Alert, you’d get notified every time the name of the company turned up in an article, and it was up to you to sift through the news for the information you wanted.

Those days are no more. Zirra Alerts filter for acquisitions, bankruptcy, funding information, layoffs, legal problems, officers joining or leaving the company, partnerships, product launches, and mentions. If you’re a potential investor, a VC firm that needs to keep up, a business owner with an eye on the competition, or just a person who likes convenient information, this tool saves you a whole lot of time. Go ahead. Play around with it. It’s still in beta, which means that there might be a few kinks. But the more you use it, the more it learns, and the more useful it’ll be.     


Zirra’s Experts Conclude 2017 with Significant Donations to Charitable Organizations Worldwide.

Zirra’s expert network is concluding the year with significant donations to charitable organizations dealing with environmental issues, women’s rights, and disease research.

Philanthropy has always been a corporate practice; in recent years the number of startups caring about corporate social responsibility has grown and according to Charity Navigator, in 2016 an estimated $390B was given to charitable causes, marking the third year in a row that total giving has reached record levels.

Zirra is a technology company focusing on company analysis using Artificial Intelligence. Zirra utilizes the latest techniques in NLP to collect and process huge volumes of unstructured text, to detect companies and their semantic context, and to model their interrelationships. As a part of informing our analyses, we incorporate crowd sentiment surveys and opinions from experts in the industry.

Depending on the industry, Zirra scouts experts to share their opinions about a wide range of private companies. Experts are given the option to remain anonymous, or they can go on the record and potentially be contacted to answer further questions. Zirra offers experts the option to be directly compensated or to donate their compensation to a charity of their choosing. This year, experts contributions ranged between $100 and $2,000 for their help curating Zirra’s due diligence reports with their knowledge on the industry and market.

Thus far in 2017, a significant portion of our experts network have taken our offer and decided to donate their compensation to charities and nonprofit organizations such as the Haifa Women’s Crisis Shelter, Oceana, Sick Children’s Trust, The Israel Cancer Association, The Good Traveler, and more.

As our company grows, our expert network and opportunity to reach more charities is also growing. Zirra offers their experts the opportunity to donate to a charity of their choosing or to a nonprofit organization such as The Make-A-Wish Foundation, World Cancer Research Fund International, Girls Who Code, Prize4Life, Save the Children, Room to Read, ShelterBox, Orbis International, and Best Friends
