Crunchbase is partnering with MarketWatch to bring our trusted private company data directly to MarketWatch’s company profile pages. Beginning today, a new Crunchbase-powered widget will arm readers with data to help them track, monitor, and strategically time their investments. 

“This partnership is particularly exciting because Crunchbase data will fuel the launch of MarketWatch’s new private company profiles in addition to enhancing the data available on their existing pre-IPO company pages,” said Crunchbase CEO, Jager McConnell. “MarketWatch readers are some of the savviest investors in the world, and we’re thrilled that our data was selected to inform them about the private sector.” 

When visiting MarketWatch company pages, readers can now easily view data pulled from Crunchbase like, each company’s description, founding date, latest funding round details, number of employees, categories, featured team members, and logo. 

This new feature compliments MarketWatch’s business, tech, and markets reporting to give investors yet another edge toward beating the market. “MarketWatch readers constantly keep their eyes on companies of all sizes. They track monitor and strategically time their investments by following companies that in some cases fly under the radar, maximizing their returns and leading the pack in smart investment decisions. More than most, MarketWatch readers know that today’s private companies will one day be publicly traded and because of that they pay attention closely to private entities. By partnering with Crunchbase, MarketWatch will now provide private company data to all MarketWatch users.
