SPEEDA Significantly Enhances Coverage of Global Startup Information by Leveraging Data from Crunchbase and Qichacha


Tokyo – October 4, 2019 – Uzabase, Inc. is excited to announce an agreement with Crunchbase, Inc. and Suzhou Langdong Network Technology Co., Ltd. (operator of Qichacha) that will see data on thousands of global startups become available on its business intelligence platform SPEEDA.
This significant enhancement of SPEEDA’s database will allow users to look up information provided by Crunchbase and Qichacha on startups from across the globe, with a focus on the USA and China.

Overview of Global Startup Information

With this agreement, Uzabase will leverage services provided by Crunchbase and Suzhou Langdong Network Technology in order to distribute startup data on the SPEEDA platform. 

Crunchbase is a provider of a world leading database on startup companies and offers a vast range of information on startups across North America, Europe, and Asia.
Suzhou Langdong Network Technology is the operator of Qichacha, a leading provider of data on companies in China that offers a wealth of information on rapidly evolving Chinese startups which have been the subject of significant attention worldwide over recent years.    

By signing this agreement, SPEEDA now offers company profile information on thousands of startups from both these companies’ databases, and also allows users to search for startups by country/region and business description. This information can be applied by SPEEDA users in a multitude of ways, including in research and analysis for the development of new businesses and solutions. Furthermore, this data will be expanded on a regular basis going forward to ensure that SPEEDA continues to provide business professionals with the information they require to make effective decisions.


Message from Yusuke Inagaki, Chief Executive Officer of SPEEDA

In recent years, there have been many successful examples of co-creation projects between large companies and startups, which have drawn much attention to startups from Japan, the USA, and China. Our customers have also been requesting an expansion of our startup information coverage. As such, we are pleased to announce that SPEEDA will leverage Crunchbase and Qichacha to deliver startup information to all users of our platform. We would also like to note that this is the first time Qichacha has signed an agreement to redistribute their data on Chinese startups to a Japanese company.

For SPEEDA, this expansion is just the first step. In the future, we will make every effort to expand information on startups in other countries as we continue on our quest to make SPEEDA a truly global business and economic information platform that offers the most cutting-edge information to help our users.
