May 4, 2013: I originally posted this in February 2012, so the listings of startups in those other directories has only gone up.
StartupNorth did the right thing and now have a CC-By Attribution NC License on their index (still need to have that listed somewhere other than a comment, and non-commercial is less free than just going ahead and making it by attribution).
We want to enable local startup communities to collect, curate and display their city's data anyway they want.
I’m working on a couple of things with Vancouver startup open data and Startup Genome, and had a super encouraging meeting with the Vancouver Economic Commission. Stay tuned!
