Attention Bids HQ - error on LinkedIn

Post by sectornitad »

Hi Bidstack HQ -
Is there a reason you are leaving the “latest funding” showing the initial crowd source? I would thought any passer-by not in the know would see Bids profile on LinkedIn and assume the company was small-time early stage looking at this figure. Would it be better to show recent funding to show off company success?

... I think this data is pulled from Crunchbase. Update there maybe or is there ability to switch it off o LinkedIn?

I took matters into my own hands and contacted Crunchbase. I provided details and they have updated. Not bad service really!

I imagine LinkedIn has cached the old figures as updated not showing yet, but maybe tomorrow...

Crunchbase still have the 'people' section wrong. I did provide them with details, but it doesn't get used on LinkedIn.

Bids LinkedIn now updated with latest fund raise. Although annoyingly it is in dollars not pounds. At least it now doesn't show the Angel investment round of only 600k though!
