A free database of technology companies, people, and investors that anyone can edit. Its goal is to make information about the startup world available to everyone and maintainable by anyone.

– Create compelling social media content such as short video pieces, interesting infographics, and thought pieces, like blog posts or op-eds. Then actively manage the online communities and create a detailed yet flexible content calendar that guides sharing the content through social channels like LinkedIn, Twitter, and to a lesser degree, on Facebook.
