One of my favorite tools for company research is CrunchBase. While it isn’t typically all that detailed, it’s a great way to get a quick overview of many privately held companies–especially startups.

If you’re an investor who does millions of dollars in deals annually (I know YOU probably aren’t at this point), it’s a trivial investment to buy reports or data feeds from CB Insights. If you’re fascinated by the world of startups and venture investing, take a look at CB Insights’ Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a:

At ChubbyBrain they said they liked to hire people as interns before taking them on full-time, so don’t be afraid to reach out if you’re not a perfect fit for any of these positions.
