If you want to grab info about a company, Crunchbase can help you. This is similar to the Clearbit use case.
It takes only 3 simple steps with dashdash:
- Grab a key
- Send the request with GET
- Parse the request with PARSE
Grab a key
Send the request
A1: 93f3c098... A2: uber A3: =get("https://api.crunchbase.com/v3.1/organizations/"&A2&"?user_key="&A1)
A1 is your API key. A2 is the company you’re looking for, in lowercase. A3 is the request itself.
Parse the request
A4 = PARSE(A3, “data.properties.founded_on”)
To see on which date the company (Uber) was founded on (2009-03-01 is the result).
