Announcing Crunchbase 2.0

Stocks in this article: AOL

The startup economy is rapidly becoming a global economic growth engine, and efficient tracking of the many startups, investors and entrepreneurs in the scene is a huge challenge and an opportunity . CrunchBase is the open, crowd-sourced online dataset used by hundreds of thousands each month to track that startup economy. Crunchbase 2.0, which launched today, marks the first major update since its launch in 2007.

Everything from the user experience to the underlying technology has been re-built to encourage more crowd-sourced data and a more useful experience. Among the important new features in Crunchbase 2.0 are an improved mobile experience based on a responsive, card-based design, immediate publication of most user-supplied data, far easier data entry and editing, and new data categories. Anyone who contributes data is required to register, but otherwise the site is open to anyone free of charge and with no registation requirements. Perhaps most importantly of all, the site is built on a graph database technology, which will allow for the addition of new data sets and functionality required for the creation of a “business graph.”

“What we are working toward,” says Matt Kaufman, president of CrunchBase, “is a platform that offers a true business graph, which means we are not only capturing information, the way the previous version Crunchbase did, we are also capturing the countless connections between people, companies and activities. CrunchBase 2.0 will make it easier to answer complex questions our users want to ask, such as which startups are attracting top engineers, or what are the new hot categories for startup investment.”
