About Us

Priceonomics helps companies crawl and structure data from the web. We also write about data, economics, and business on our blog. We’re based in San Francisco, CA and funded by great investors like Y Combinator, Spark Capital, SV Angel and more.

A wide variety of companies use our services to get structured data from the web. Our customers range from startups, hedge funds, consulting firms, real estate investors, and governments. If your company needs data crawled from the web, contact us.
