LinkedIn Pages to include Crunchbase insights
Today, we formally announced LinkedIn Pages -- the next generation of LinkedIn Company Pages. Pages have been rebuilt from the ground up to make it easier for brands, institutions and organizations - from small businesses to large enterprises, to foster meaningful conversations with LinkedIn’s community of more than 590 million members. Learn more about the launch on our LinkedIn Marketing Solutions blog.
As part of the relaunch, we’ve worked closely with Crunchbase, a destination to discover industry trends, investments, and news about global companies, to integrate relevant funding insights and key investor information directly within a company’s LinkedIn Page. Now, LinkedIn members will be able to see Crunchbase insights directly on the LinkedIn Page for any company that has an active Crunchbase profile, providing members with quick access to a more complete company profile in one location.
This information, combined with the many other insights showcased on Pages, will help members stay up to date on companies they’re interested in or following. For job seekers, knowing funding information can help validate interest in a company as an employer. Sales and business professionals can also get a snapshot of a company’s trajectory to better prepare for any upcoming meetings or discussions.
We are rolling out this integration to members with their settings set to English starting on desktop over the next few weeks, and will be expanding both globally and to mobile in early 2019.
