This type of information is not usually readily available, but you can extrapolate certain things based on information.
First, when you say “engaged users”, you’ll have to take a look at the broad picture of “where are the users for this product?” This can include (and is not limited to):
- App Downloads
- Site Visits
- Social Media Engagement
Another thing to look for can be job postings. Are they hiring? Are employees leaving?
And, of course – are they actively taking on more money (or have they added something that would presumably allow them to not have to?)
With that said, the two pre-series A apps that I’d keep an eye on are:
Both of them fill a similar need – there is a huge need for advanced education in the technology sectors, and people are increasingly turning toward the adoption of non-traditional learning systems to support them.
Just as we’ve seen trends in careers in the healthcare and technology fields, so too will we see advances in applications that will provide support services for people wanting to break into these careers.
