Clearworld Model

Know about our core IP to understand MENA tech markets.

Clearworld Model

Our IP to make inferences about economic activity possible in limited-visibility markets

Heavily researched and developed since 2019, Clearworld Model is designed to treat extreme noise in markets that have low volume, low cap and limited data due to a tendency among market participants not to disclose complete information, or any information by some participants, on their activities, and a near complete absence of reference literature.

We designed the Model to take input data from any database.

It uses 240 ETL operations and 160 enriched features to make statistically-sound inference and scientific research into such markets possible and reliable.

Clearworld Model is a generalized data enrichment model, with MENA tech and venture markets being a special case we explore as our priority subject matter.

Track Record

Public Predictions Made Using Clearworld Model

Clearworld made the first public prediction in 2023, successfully predicting the date and exact process of when and how the first Saudi unicorns will be born.

The Date and Process of When and How Saudi’s First Unicorn Will Be Announced 5 Months Before It Happened

Published in July 2023
Happened in Nov-Dec 2023

In 2021, analysis using Clearworld Model hinted that 6-7 years after 2017 will see significant increase in Saudi growth and late stage deals.

In 2022, analysis using Clearworld Model showed a definitive holding behavior of Saudi venture positions starting from series A.

in July 2023, triangulating these signals with global state-backed unicorn creation behavior, as well as GCC government decisionmaking patterns, we published a detailed prediction of the date and manner in which the first Saudi unicorns will be announced in our first Policymaker Resources report.

In Nov and Dec 2023, this prediction came true with 100% accuracy.
