CrunchBase is the leading platform to discover innovative companies and the people behind them. The company began as a simple database to track startups covered on TechCrunch. CrunchBase delivers market insights to millions of users and businesses around the world. The CrunchBase dataset is constantly expanding through contributions from its community of users, investment firms, and network of global partners. The firm accelerates innovation by bringing together data on companies and the people behind them.
Crunchbase — the database spun out from TechCrunch that charts startups, other tech companies, the people who work for them, and those who fund them — has secured some new funding of its own — $18 million — and with it, a new plan.
