Leigh Drogen takes pride in his being a two-time accidental entrepreneur and in his passion for behavioral economics. He founded Estimize, touted to be the world’s first open financial estimates platform. Basically, the company allows independent analysts as well as buy-side, sell-side analysts a platform for publishing their forecasts of the fundamental metrics of publicly-traded companies. With a wide range of contributors adding their points of view to the discussion, readers and users will have a more representative and accurate data set to work on.
The platform is increasingly becoming popular on Wall Street because of its innovative approach for getting estimates on key data points for financial earnings releases. The analysts as well as private investors come together, so to speak, in getting more precise fundamental metrics – truly, a boon for investors.
