Whogotfunded.com, a new site that’s on a mission to become the world’s most comprehensive online venture capital (VC) database for people to keep an eye on the latest high-tech start-ups that have raised funding, has today gone live.

From today, users of the site will have free access to the latest funding deals taking place in every industry and region in the world. People will also be able to sign up to receive tailored email alerts.

The company behind Whogotfunded.com is Digimind, a Paris-based digital intelligence provider.

Its core business involves automatically collecting and analysing large unstructured data for its customers.

Back in April, Digimind said the site will track, in real-time, VC events and the latest deals in every industry and region in the world.

It said Whogotfunded.com will automatically extract information from Twitter, web news and The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Apparently, the database will be updated every minute.

Digimind also indicated that more than 2m news stories will be analysed every day to track the latest VC transactions and deals done.

CEO Paul Vivant said people would be able to search for VC news by location, industry and company name.

Digimind is aiming to publish between 100 and 150 VC deals per day on the site, as opposed to sites such as Crunchbase, which it said currently publishes about 20 to 25 deals per day.
