Revealing the fruit of that labor, the CrunchBase Venture Program now includes over 1,000 venture firms, incubators, and accelerators. That’s 60% of the active investment firms in the U.S., but more than just venture investors, the data includes information on corporate investors and the incubators hatching the next wave of early stage prospects — firms like Verizon Ventures and Telstra Ventures along with leading incubators such as DreamIT Ventures and Innovation Works.
In all, those firms have invested in 14,000 companies through 21,000 funding rounds totaling $170 billion in investment.
As the startup bug catches on globally, CrunchBase is on the scene. Already, over 30% of the venture program members are outside the United States and the CrunchBase team is intent on growing that global coverage.
