Startup Graph

How founders are connected

Overview

Have your imagined that every startup founder or employee is connected in some way? This data visualization project illustrates the relationship among founders and employees in tech companies. An interesting insight revealed by this graph is the obvious small world phenomenon in the tech community. It also tells the stories of famous corporate spin-offs and acquisitions, as well as new ventures started by serial entrepreneurs.

This is my coursework in the class ECS 163 - Information Interfaces at UC Davis. Data is provided by CrunchBase.
