Yugenpedia is a publicly viewable (but invitation-only editable) wiki that focuses on the yūgen ("deep understanding") of early-stage companies. Its intent is to create a more objective and candid view of companies that are too nascent to typically merit a Wikipedia entry. The Yugenpedia system provides potential investors with a realistic assessment of the member companies while giving those companies valuable feedback. In pursuit of that goal, the entries can be edited not only by the companies themselves but also by others knowledgeable about the ecosystem. Potential investors may benefit in particular from each company entry's candid discussion of
- The company's history, product, and management.
- Externally verified updates on recent developments.
- The management team's take on their industry's competitive landscape and its major players.
Additionally, some companies may choose to store goals and results, a SWOT analysis, and other private information within an entry in the Yugenpedia Vault, and investors can gain access with that company's permission.
Publishing on Yugenpedia is free of charge to all companies that successfully meet and continue to meet our expectations for quality and objectivity. With that said, we offer services that provide even greater accountability, mentorship, and exposure for interested companies. For more information, see Yugenpedia - For Companies.
Companies are highly encouraged to adhere to the Editorial Guidelines when creating and maintaining their entries.
If you believe a company (including your own) should be added to Yugenpedia, or otherwise wish to contribute, please contact info at yugenpedia dot org.

Featured Ecosystem Entry: Self-sovereign identity
Self-sovereign identity, or SSI, is the idea that "an individual should own and control their identity without the intervening administrative authorities." This movement seeks to grant control over personal data to individuals rather than leaving access to private credentials to administrative third parties.
