What is the best topic that suits my interest the most?
Within scoutAIs, there are more than 40 topics right now and you might wonder how to pick the right one to follow.
Actually, not all of them are independent topics. There are a few Parent-Child relationships. A parent topic covers broader ideas around a subject and a child topic covers more specific subjects. Through expanding this parent-child structure within scoutAI topics, we are aiming to grow the comprehensiveness and depth of the coverage to meet our customers’ needs.

Suppose you are monitoring news around fundraising activities of startups in general, but more specifically about ongoing IPOs. In that case, you can monitor news with “Fund Raising” tagging on the app, and set up email alerts on the subtopic “Initial Public Offering”.
If you are only keen on receiving updates on IPOs of a specific sector or a region, you may do so by layering sector and country filtering accordingly. Below is an example of how users can search news with the scoutAI topics.
