Cant find StartupDB or companies collection


trying to see how to find startup DB .

any help Is appreciated

The handouts for Chapter 4 (which is available here: contains this:


This dataset has many references to “startup”…so maybe they are talking about that? Maybe you just need to load it into your local MongoDB instance?
I could not find that particular dataset using MongoDB Compass, on MongoDB server, under “aggregations” either…


@Cypheron is right, there’s no such collection in the aggregations database, please import the companies.json into your local MongoDB.
