In partnership with our users and the investment community, CrunchBase has assembled the most comprehensive public database of companies, investors, and entrepreneurs. We created the CrunchBase Venture Program to help investment firms guarantee that their public data is accurately represented inside CrunchBase.
Why should you join? CrunchBase is used by millions of people every month and has become the de facto record of startup communities around the world. Every day we see entrepreneurs evaluating investment firms, investors sourcing new opportunities, and journalists and analysts researching portfolio data. The CrunchBase Dataset also underpins a large number of business intelligence, CRM, and productivity applications. Joining the CrunchBase Venture Program will help us keep your firm’s profile accurate on CrunchBase and in the applications built on top of our data.
Who can join? Venture funds, angel groups, angels, accelerators, corporate venture, university programs, incubators and even non-equity programs who support startups are welcome to join the program. Members must agree to provide public data on their investment portfolio at least once per quarter. Firms making equity investments must have made at least five investments that can be shared with CrunchBase. Non-equity programs must have at least five portfolio companies.
What are the benefits?
