TradeVibes is the best way to discover and research hot new startups online. It’s a platform for our community to share, discuss, and evaluate information about these companies.

We offer the most comprehensive and up-to-date information about private companies. TradeVibes is also a tool for finding and sharing news and opinions about companies. By leveraging the collective wisdom of our community, TradeVibes separates the best startups from their competitors. Our long term mission is to democratize business information.

TradeVibes was founded in 2007 by four early employees of PayPal who shared a passion for entrepreneurship and cool new startups. We are the first structured wiki for company information. The alpha version of our site launched in November of 2007. TradeVibes was acquired by VentureBeat in 2009 and relaunched was VentureBeat Profiles.
