Crunchbase is the free database of technology companies, people, and investors that anyone can edit. Our mission is to make information about the startup world available to everyone. These content guidelines provide best practices for submitting content to Crunchbase.
The tone should be 3rd person i.e. “company x” rather than “our company." The overview should start if possible with one good sentence that describes the company. Then add more detail to the company. Avoid marketing language like “best” or “most comprehensive." Avoid language that will date for e.g. “new" replace with “launched April 2008.”
Put in as much of the general information as you can. Logo, headquarters, website, founded date, and 3-5 categories are highly recommended. Any social media links are useful, as Crunchbase will display social media icons on Crunchbase pages.
It is best not to use personal emails for company contact information but rather info@, contact@.
Founding date is useful and often something our users search for with Crunchbase Pro.
Add categories that a company is in (i.e. sector, industry). We recommend anywhere between 3-5 categories.
If you are not able to provide a street address, the city and country are often used in Crunchbase Pro searches.
Add the management team, founders, and any other significant team members.
Please include all previous funding rounds. We aim to be comprehensive on funding. Please add as much information as you can, the round, amount, investors, date and source title and source URL. Typically a good source URL is an article about the funding round or a press release, which outlines the funding.
This section is for any acquisition the company has made. Add acquisitions through the acquiring company's profile and the acquisition status will automatically appear on the acquired company's profile.
Add any important news links about the company here.
