“Anand Sanwal created a company based on an identified need in the marketplace, built on it and was successful, and provides the voice of experience to those individuals thinking about starting a company or looking to improve an existing business,” said Russell Sarder, CEO of NetCom Learning.

The reason behind the founding of CB Insights which collects and provides market intelligence on private companies, according to Anand Sanwal, is that the existing information companies provided poor and unreliable data. Sanwal, who prior to founding CB Insights was a VP at American Express with the Innovation Fund, ran into the problem of a lack of information on private sector companies on a daily basis. He took a chance and decided to develop a better information product. To do this efficiently he created proprietary software that mined the Internet for actionable information. In the interview with SarderTV, Sanwal talks about how hard it was to leave a comfortable position in a respected company and strike out on his own though he admits to an possessing an entrepreneurial spirit all his life. He also talks about his early years in business working at a dot.com that ultimately failed and what he was able to take away from the experience and apply to his new business. In addition, Sanwal shares his personal thoughts on what it is like to be an entrepreneur, the challenges one faces including getting people to believe in your product, obtaining funding and hiring the right people.
