Tech Crunch operates Crunch Base, a database of the startup ecosystem consisting of investors, incubators and start-ups, which comprises around 500,000 data points profiling companies, people, funds, fundings and events.
The company claims to have more than 50,000 active contributors.
Crunch Base says it has 2 million users accessing its database each month.
