I'm a third year at UC Berkeley and am currently researching the use of alternative data in private equity. I'm curious to know if you have ever used an "alternative" data source in your search to evaluate potential risks and opportunities of a company. This can be any non-traditional information about a company, industry, or the economy as a whole.
I'd be happy to hear any insight you have.
