@writerpollock I want to see more 500 companies in New Zealand!
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
Would love to see this for other accelerators and perhaps the portfolio of various VC firms. I'm surprised there aren't more companies outside the U.S. included in the map. 500's doing a ton of international outreach and investments.

@rrhoover I think a lot of international companies and founders come to the bay area and never leave/bring their HQ here.

@rrhoover It's definitely an interesting look at things. To be fair to 500, some of the international startups didn't have an address listed (or I couldn't find it)... so they won't appear on the map.

@chrisbuttenham idea: would be neat to see travel lines where companies were originally founded vs. where they reside today to visualize relocation.

@micrum would you believe me if I told you I spent many many hours manually scraping and formatting and getting images and lat/lng, while binge watching Netflix? :)

@alexsopinka for sure I do believe, because we did the same thing for our demo ;) https://friendlydata.io/demo

500 startups is one of the best accelerator program.
