CrunchBase in an online platform providing information about startups and technology companies, including related entities such as the products they sell, key people they employ, and investments they made and received.

We provide here an RDF data set of Crunchbase as of October 2015. The data set contains information about

  • 1,946,435 jobs

  • 519,763 news
  • 430,093 people
  • 60,076 products, and
  • 33,127 acquisitions.

The data set has been used, among other things, for data integration with financial data sources to evaluate the performance of particular companies and for monitoring news to find statements that are not in Crunchbase as an RDF knowledge graph yet.
