Mattermark

Introducing 'Crunchbase News'

In Jan. 2016 Alex Wilhelm left a safe, good job at TechCrunch to build a news staff at Mattermark, a startup selling access to rich data on tech startups and investors. Alex is now at rival Crunchbase on a similar mission: infusing smart analysis with numbers that prove the case.

Why Mattermark Matters

Former TechCrunch reporter Alex Wilhelm loves the challenge of his new job as editor-in-chief of Mattermark. "It's  a combo of my old job -- writing, reporting and publishing, plus a new layer of [managerial] skills I've had to learn." Alex is on the hunt for smart contributed content -- that isn't ghost-written.

Profile: Stephen J. Bronner, Entrepreneur

Officially speaking, Stephen J. Bronner is now a deputy editor at Entrepreneur, supervising seven staff writers. "It's always fantastic when you're able to do a new job with the same people you've become accustomed to over the years," he says. We say "officially" because Stephen isn't straying far from the contributed content gatekeeper role he filled for the past two years.

Alex Wilhelm, Mattermark EIC

Alex Wilhelm left TechCrunch last month to become EIC at Mattermark, a 45-person, SF-based data mining shop. Says Alex: "You can be independent, build out your own editorial team, we have all this data, you can guide your own ship and that's an attractive proposition."
