Wahhhhh, no-one knows my company exists

28th of November 2008 by conor

A never-ending conversation I have with other start-ups is how get their name visible, build profile and eventually get covered by one of the main Tech News sites.

One way of kicking that off is to make sure your company is profiled on CrunchBase. We’ve recently started using the plug-in here on Web2Ireland to give extra context to stories. And ye know what? The TechCrunch guys love that we are.

It really is gratifying to know that the efforts made by the start-up community in Ireland are recognised by the guys in Silicon Valley. So what you waiting for, sign up now!

Are there any plans to change http://www.web2ireland.org/companies/ to use the crunchbase data?

Yes, we have some neat mashup plans. Just need someone to volunteer to do the work!

Glad you guys like it!

Always feel free to send suggestions for ways to improve it…

Hi Conor,

Have you checked out TradeVibes yet? TradeVibes is the best place to discover, research and discuss hot (or not so hot) startups. We’re a startup wiki with over 12,000 company profiles with quite a few Irish startups included (see here for Irish startups on TradeVibes: http://bit.ly/ujC7).

We also offer widgets so you can profile your own company or other startup companies on your blog.

Take a look and let us know what you think!


Conor. I’ll do what I can to help out next week. Sure post the plans up here and maybe someone else will help too.

Hi Ger, Gordon Murray is doing some stuff on this if you want to contact him.
