the next web
Patrick de Laive, best known for co-founding one of the world’s top tech media and event companies The Next Web (TNW), has recently unveiled Index, a business intelligence tool that tracks thousands of tech companies around the world. Chris Messina, inventor of the hashtag and a closed beta tester of Index described the tool as “what [he’d] always wanted Crunchbase to become”.
Startup Smart revealed their new look last week complete with new menu bars, a refreshed cleaner layout and a tightened up colour scheme. It follows the trend set by Mashable and The Next Web last year when they decided to give their sites a facelift in at the beginning of the year.
