The Startup Universe


The Startup Universe displays and explores the relationships between startup companies and their founders and investors (venture capitalists), offering a comprehensive exploratory view of startup life since 1990. Using data from CrunchBase, the user may discover trends in investor connections, where and when money exchanged hands, which startups did the best, which founders are the most prolific, and much more. The piece was a collaboration between Visually, Accurat and myself.
