You know who you are. You check into CrunchBase every day, maybe a few times, just to make sure your competition has not closed that new round. If you are that guy, CrunchBase is about to make your life a little easier. Today we are launching the CrunchBase Daily, an email roundup of the latest funding data from CrunchBase. You can sign up for the CrunchBase Daily by joining our mailing list or following us on Twitter where we’ll tweet each day’s recap.
The first version of the CrunchBase Daily will focus on new funding rounds, which we are capturing at a rate more than double earlier this year. That surge is partly due to our CrunchBase Venture Program, which we announced six weeks ago at Disrupt NY and has grown to more than 200 investment firms. This month alone, CrunchBase has already recorded 417 rounds from 30 countries, totaling $3.4 billion.
In the coming weeks, we will extend our coverage to include acquisition announcements, executive moves, and more.
Remember, CrunchBase is the free database of technology companies, people, and investors that anyone can edit. The funding rounds, people profiles, and company milestones are powered by our readers.
Everyone benefits when you update your profile and your company’s milestones. CrunchBase data powers TechCrunch and many other websites — plus it’s used behind the scenes by hundreds of investment firms and corporate development teams. And we use Crunchbase research to fuel our editorial. Like, here or here.
For this reason it’s extra crucial that your Crunchbase presence be accurate. So if you are having trouble editing CrunchBase, just drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
