Why do I have two accounts?

On Crunchbase, registered user accounts and person profile pages are different. Your user account is the private information that you can use to control your billing, login information and alerts. Your profile page is what displays externally on Crunchbase.

User Accounts

User accounts are created when someone registers for a Crunchbase account. Users on Crunchbase have the ability to follow profiles, contribute data, and create company, investor, or people profiles.

You can create a user account here.

You can access your user account by clicking the icon on the upper right hand corner of the website, and can update your user account settings by clicking My Account.

User accounts do not appear in search in order to protect your privacy.

Person Profiles

Person profiles can be found in search and are public pages. Anyone with a user account can create or edit any (person) profile.

Individuals who would like to be found on Crunchbase can create a person profile to link to their company, investments, and highlight their accomplishments. Highlight your current and past jobs, your education, any board seats you may hold, as well as any of your investments.

If you’d like to add a person profile for yourself or someone else on Crunchbase, you can do so by creating a person profile here. Along with Crunchbase contributors, our staff also maintains people profiles to ensure profiles are filled out accurately and thoroughly.

You can edit your person profile anytime by clicking Update in the upper right corner of any section of the page.
