Since launching the CrunchBase Venture Program at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC last week, we’ve added more than 100 venture firms, angel groups, and incubators to the program including Google Ventures. Together our partners have taken part in over 3,900 funding rounds, funded 2,700 companies, and helped guide investment of over $35B. Beyond the numbers, each firm we’ve spoken to has given us incredible feedback about the platform and offered their support in building out an open, timely, and accurate dataset.
Here’s a sampling of what we are hearing:
SoftTech VC is very excited to support the development of Crunchbase into an even more comprehensive data set for our community of startups and investors. We have been using it heavily as part of our day to day, and we’re thrilled to hear about AOL’s interest in expanding it. –Jeff Clavier
SV Angel is excited about the future of CrunchBase and the Venture Program. Building a comprehensive and open dataset about startups and technology is something that we’re proud to be a part of. –David Lee
Felicis Ventures is really excited about working with Crunchbase and the pivotal role they play in the venture community. In working with pioneering VC firms such as Felicis, Crunchbase is well poised to build the best dataset on startups and technology. –Aydin Senkut
The CrunchBase Venture Program is open to venture firms, angel groups, and incubators. If you would like to enroll your firm in the program, please visit the venture program page. And, if you feel like someone you know should be participating, please nudge them for us :) Working together we can create the best dataset in the industry ensure that it remains open for everyone to consume.
A number of people have asked us to publish a list of firms who are now taking part so here’s where we are as of today.
