Yugenpedia is a publicly viewable (but invitation-only editable) wiki that focuses on the yūgen ("deep understanding") of early-stage technology companies. Its intent is to create a more objective and candid view of companies that are too nascent to typically merit a Wikipedia entry. This view gives both potential investors a realistic assessment of these startups and critical feedback to these companies. In pursuit of that goal, the entries can be edited not only by the companies themselves but also by others knowledgeable about the ecosystem, which includes potential investors and competitors. Potential investors may benefit in particular from each company article's candid discussion of
- The competitive landscape and its major players.
- A SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis.
- A regularly updated Goals/Results section. This is a record of a sequence of time-specific goals the company sets and a reporting out of their performance against the goals. It is perhaps the most closely-viewed section for serious investors, both private and institutional.
There are currently 35 companies listed. If you believe a company (including your own) should be added to Yugenpedia, or otherwise wish to contribute, please contact [email protected]. State your reasons for why you believe you can constructively contribute to the Yugenpedia community.
