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.
