VB Profiles

VB Profiles is a partnership between Spoke Intelligence and VentureBeat. It is the new source for timely, relevant and comprehensive information on industries, industry trends, companies and people— designed from the ground up to meet the needs of business managers, sales, and research professionals. Launching with an initial database of over 20,000 entities across multiple industries, VB Profiles helps drive businesses forward with its robust crowd-sourced data gathering model, paired with automatically-updated enterprise-specific news. Business professionals turn to VB Profiles in search of the latest company information, including executive profiles, company milestones, industry trends, news, blog posts, and much more. VB Profiles also allows business professionals to create user-friendly profiles of companies and people in a smooth and organized process that replaces existing inefficient data gathering techniques. Profiles are shared with the community at large, including peers, partners and industry experts – all able to interact and collaborate to create relevant insights about people, companies, industries and trends. Spoke Intelligence provides a 360 degree view of an industry, industry trends, a company and its people from all the information available on the internet — no more spending hours Googling for all the different information you need on a company. Ultimately such a view across thousands of businesses enables professionals to derive insights and drive business around an industry, a trend, a company and people. Most importantly, Spoke Intelligence is community-based. They believe that information on the Internet shouldn’t be simply limited to what people publish about themselves. They envisioned a collaborative space where communities can respectfully interact around companies and people outside the control of those companies and people. Spoke Intelligence will become the premier network for this kind of vibrant community. They are curating information by giving the community at large the power to update profiles and provide insights. They have created a moderation platform to provide enough oversight to ensure that community-provided content is appropriate. Their focus is business information, so this will not be the venue for airing customer support issues or maligning someone’s reputation. They are doing this in partnership with companies and individuals. In compliance with their privacy policy, individuals are able to opt-out of their profile at any time. And, is doesn’t stop there. They are regularly aggregating additional third-party information. Over time their profiles will continue to evolve with a current mix of community-supplied and third-party relevant public information. Everything is free – they just ask that you take a minute to contribute when you find interesting information about a company or a business professional. By doing so, they will be able to offer a free resource, while also ensuring we have the most up-to-date information. By aggregating, curating and organizing the most reliable and up-to-date business data and information, we are creating new insights around industries, companies and people.
