Investors are interested in predicting future success of startup companies, preferably using publicly available data which can be gathered using free online sources. Using public-only data has been shown to work, but there is still much room for improvement. Two of the best performing prediction experiments use 17 and 49 features respectively, mostly numeric and categorical in nature. In this paper, we significantly expand and diversify both the sources and the number of features (to 171) to achieve better prediction.
