To list an event on a person or organization profile, you can search for any event that the attendee has attended using the top search.

After finding the event profile you want to update, click the three-dot icon, and select 'Edit' at the upper right corner of the event profile. 


Then scroll down to the 'Event Appearances' section and select Create New Appearance

This will take you to the New Event Appearance page where you can begin to add participants (organizations or person profiles) to the event.

If a participant already has an existing Crunchbase profile, you simply need to type their name into the search bar and select the correct profile to begin adding them to the event:


By adding the attendee’s profile to the event page, it will automatically appear onto the associated profile.

If there are no matching results in the search dropdown, this means the participant does not have a Crunchbase profile yet. You can create a new profile from the same page by selecting Create New Participant:


Select from the dropdown if the participant is an Organization (company, school or investment firm) or if they're a Person

This will lead you to the 'Edit New' page where you can add their details including Name, Photo, and Primary Location. 


Even though only a few fields are required, please fill in as many details as possible in order to create a complete Crunchbase profile.

Unless you are adding an additional event to the profile, you do not need to click Create New Event on the new profile to add the event you originally intended to add. The event will already be queued to be added.


Once you are done filling out the page, click Continue at the top right of the page.

Your screen will return to the “Edit New Event Appearance” page where you can fill out the “Add details about this event appearance” section. 

Once you’ve finished adding event details, click Continue at either the bottom or top right of the page. This will take you back to the main edit page for the company where you can Save All Edits at the top right of the page.
