Some CrunchBase API Stats and Apps
August 29, 2008 at 20:58 PM EDT
Six weeks ago we launched an API for our technology database, CrunchBase . The idea was to give away lots of clean, structured data about the companies we cover, data that could be used to build new services and improve upon existing ones. Since then we've seen a number of impressive things built on top of the API. And the traffic has started to add up: between July 15th and August 15th we fulfilled nearly 800,000 API requests, compared to ~1.3m page views for the website itself. We now have over 15 projects hooked up to CrunchBase with many others on the way. Developers interested in using CrunchBase data for their own projects should check out the API documentation . Today we wanted to highlight a few of the more sophisticated product integrations to date.
