Our Story

Our founder built bots for Bing Search

CrawlNow was founded with a goal to create a level playing field for access to web data. Even those who do not have resources that Microsoft & Google do, should be able to derive intelligence from the world's largest data source.

While working at Microsoft and other big tech for 15 years, and having built web crawlers for Bing Search, our founder witnessed how valuable web data can be, for any organization, and what it takes to make it accessible.
