It is often a laborious, travel-intensive job. But machine learning and predictive analytics are starting to transform how an investor puts a portfolio together. "My job used to be about getting on a plane once a week and going to a different European city to try to find people who were doing interesting things," says Roberto Bonanzinga, co-founder of InReach Ventures and previously a partner at Balderton Capital, a UK-based VC firm which invests primarily in early-stage European technology companies.
Garmin isn't just using CES to show off new fitness watches and software updates. The company also used the massive tradeshow to unveil two new mobile devices designed for international travelers and backcountry explorers alike. The InReach SE and inReach Explorer both rely on Iridium satellite coverage from Garmin's DeLorme acquisition to provide two-way messaging and worldwide GPS coverage. The SE is the entry-level model, which will retail for $400 when it becomes available later this quarter. It offers "pole to pole" GPS guidance, messaging and GEOS SOS alerts.
