Problem with the way you display your articles' information
You guys have very interesting data posted.  However your format is atrocious, not up to date with displaying technology.  We have to click lots of times to get to see the info... I recommend you list the items on the first page and have pointers to more information about it... so we can see at a glance what the items are.  Many times I get discouraged from looking at our information due to the display format.

Aristotle Insight - Why have you Overlooked them?
Maybe because they are not technically a startup, but I can't believe that Tenable is either and you've listed them in the list of company logos on your main article page.  Have you takent the time to look at and see a demonstration or ask any customers of a vendor called Sergeant Laboratories with a product called Aristotle Inisight to include a perspective on what they offer in your startups to watch.  I can't believe they didn't get some consideration, but it might be that they are not as cash flush to push marketing and sales dollars as some of the others. www.aristotleinsight.com
