Tech Companies Tracked By CrunchBase

Last time I have done a small survey on the location of YC companies. This time I survey a much larger database CrunchBase. CrunchBase is a database of database of technology companies, people, and investors.

Silicon Valley companies are featured prominently in CrunchBase. Again San Francisco has a commanding lead in the number of companies among Bay Area cities. My bet is most of these are small startup companies. There aren't really huge company like Cisco (14,000 Bay Area employee in 2005).

San Francisco 905 39%
Palo Alto 285 12%
Mountain View 202 9%
San Jose 182 8%
Sunnyvale 180 8%
Menlo Park 172 7%
San Mateo 150 6%
Santa Clara 137 6%
Redwood City 103 4%
Total 2316  

These are the numbers outside of San Francisco Bay Area. New York is the clear lead in this case.

New York 868 37%
Seattle 246 10%
Los Angeles 240 10%
Austin 225 10%
Chicago 199 8%
San Diego 165 7%
Boston 156 7%
Cambridge? 145 6%
Atlanta 123 5%
Total 2367  

Although without a dominant city, these state has large number of tech companies. I aggregate the number until it exceed 100 companies.

Florida 389
Virginia 279
Colorado 257

And finally some international figures. CrunchBase probably does not have very good coverage here. China is totally off the radar screen. So is Israel.

London 515
Germany 416
India 239
Australia 232
Paris 222
Spain 207
Netherlands 179
Toronto 141
Sweden 134
Ireland 100

Below is everything in one chart. Bear in mind CrunchBase is likely to have some local bias and that the number does not indicate the size of the company. Still it is impressive to see San Francisco has twice as many tech companies has Germany.
