Help! Which type of company am I?

When you create your company page, we ask you if you're a startup, corporate brand, or investor. This affects the kind of profile we create for you. Here's a brief rundown of the categories:


If you consider your company to be a startup, it is one! You want to use your profile to either show off your products and news about your company – and track your competition – or you're looking to connect with investors (you're looking for your next funding round) and corporate brands (you're looking for a partnership or you want to apply for innovation challenges).

Corporate Brands

By choosing corporate brand, you indicate that your company is looking to connect with startups for innovation challenges, partnerships, events and more. You're probably a corporate business, brandname product, or a scale-up big enough that you are in a position to be the main party in a partnership.


VC firms, angel investors, corporate investors and accelerators are best served by the investor profile. If you represent none of the above, but your primary goal on Index as a company or institution is to be connected with startups to directly invest in them, an investor profile is the right choice as well.

How do I add my company on Index.co?

Simple! Quickly use the search bar to see if your company is already listed. If it isn't, click on the "Add it to Index" button that appears, and you're good to go!

How can I edit my company’s profile?

On your company page, find the “Add yourself to this profile” button on the top-right of the page. Once we’ve verified your email address you will be able to edit your company’s profile directly.

How can I add a funding round?

Once you’ve claimed your company on Index, go on your company’s page, click “Add Info” and choose 'Investment' from the menu.

Featured funding rounds on the TNW homepage must have an article attached, investors listed and all info filled out.

How can I collaborate with my team members on Index?

The Pro and Expert account features allow you to share lists with your team members so that they can edit them.
