Developer description

SVGrid is a startup & investor discovery/analysis platform. This vertical search web app for startups and investors is completely free to use. It's a great opportunity to see where money is flowing in the startup world, and also scout out companies near you for business development or jobs.

There are many different ways to use this search platform, depending on who you are and what you are looking to do.

For Job Seekers: show me companies in the {social space}, within {X} miles of {zip code} who have raised between {$Y and $Z Million}. My skill set is applicable to small startups, but not for a company without funding.

For Entrepreneurs Raising Money: Show me VC's with offices near me that have made their most recent investment in the last year.

For BizDev / Sales Folks: Show me Bio-tech companies near Chicago that have raised at least $2MM in funding - that's the market we're targeting.

Some other fun searches:
Highest Rollers: show me which companies have raised the most in total funding.
Biggest fails: show me the highest funded companies that are no longer operating (aka dead).
New VC on the block: show me the investors who have invested in the most companies since 2010 (spoiler: it's CrunchFund).
King of the Valley: show me investors who have been associated with the most acquisitions in CrunchBase (spoiler: it's Sequoia).
