Company profiles that are verified have been vetted by Hockeystick for completeness, and as such will have more detailed profile information than other, non-verified accounts.
Startups that become verified get access to an enhanced database which includes both grant and patent information, as well as more powerful search tools to help them better connect with the right funders and strategic partners at the right time.
If you are an investor or just searching our database for startups, keep an eye out for companies with a yellow checkmark on company profile pages which indicates that you are viewing a verified account.
Verification status is public and can be seen by anyone visiting your public profile. While verification status is evaluated upon initial signup, it is also reviewed on an annual basis.
