Don’t let the naysayers get to you and tell you this is the era of GPT3 and Cryptocurrency. I will argue that we are in a new age of big data–driven companies. For example, why wait for the right candidate to apply for a role in a company when you can search through the entire LinkedIn profile dataset to source the “perfect candidates”? Big data is similarly embroiled in seeking investment alpha, training an AI model, or automating a sales prospecting process. We have the dataset for some of such big-data needs.
LinkedIn is a wildly popular business platform used by many companies for various use cases. However, conducting menial searches is a tedious and repetitive task that is not cost-effective. While large companies with thousands of employees may be able to cope with this tedious task, this may not be the case for your business if you are a mid-sized company or a startup.
LinkDB by Proxycurl is a complete LinkedIn dataset of people and companies that provides you with an opportunity to integrate the vast sea of LinkedIn public data into your business applications in an easy, efficient and legal manner.
If you are a mid-market company based in the US or Europe with at least 50 employees, or if a reputable VC funds you for at least 1M USD, then there is a good chance that LinkDB might suit your needs.
