For the last 2.5 years, we crowdsourced sectors from startups profiles to accommodate all the different sectors on our platform. Fast forward to early 2016, we had 1300+ sectors/sub-sectors for startups. As you might predict, this made rendering an accurate search with all those sectors and matching them with investors a very cumbersome and tedious task. So in short; we needed a structure to streamline all the sectors/sub-sectors for a more efficient and effective search/pairing workflow.
