I found a startup entry that is not listed on BC, but is information that I found online by googling. This information is accurate and matches what I am seeing on my computer.

Q - Do I submit it as an entry because it is not in The Startup Database so we can make this database more complete ? Or, do I not submit it for some reason ? When entering it via the Submission Wizard, should I give credit to the locations and/or website(s) where I found the information ? What about if I find it in multiple locations ? Am I allowed to paraphrase the information I find elsewhere ? Am I allowed to copy the information I find elsewhere ?

Absolutely submit new startups when they are not in the database. Doing so is greatly appreciated.

As for the descriptions, feel free to paraphrase or write your own descriptions as we do not like to use content from others sites.
