The Common Crawl Foundation is a California 501(c)(3) registered non-profit founded by Gil Elbaz with the goal of democratizing access to web information by producing and maintaining an open repository of web crawl data that is universally accessible and analyzable.

Our vision is of a truly open web that allows open access to information and enables greater innovation in research, business and education. We level the playing field by making wholesale extraction, transformation and analysis of web data cheap and easy.
