We’re happy to announce the v3.0 release of the CrunchBase API and a brand new Crunchbase Data Hub.

What’s new in Crunchbase’s v3.0 API?

  • Significantly faster collections endpoints
  • No more date bugs in sort orders!
  • Additional data on every item to reduce query burden
  • Consistency of data types across the service
  • The API now provides access to the CrunchBase Open Data Map
  • Kick-ass documentation

Sounds great, how do I get access?

Developers can update their existing API key or apply for a new key on the Crunchbase Data Hub.

Access to the API is governed by the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial License [CC-BY-NC] as described in our Terms of Service. Guidelines for use are on the Data Hub under Accessing and Using the Dataset.

We will review each request and work hard to respond within a 24-hour window.

Moving forward…

We’ve learned a great deal since launching v2.0 of the Crunchbase API almost one year ago, and we’re excited by the potential of v3.

As part of the API lifecycle, API v2.0 will shut down on May 31st, 2015. If you are actively developing or operating against v2.0, please submit your request soon.

Visit the Crunchbase Data Hub to learn more about v3.0 and begin working on some necessary transition.

If you have any questions please email us at data@crunchbase.com.
