A little more advice about correcting Wikipedia entries. You may want to think about correcting an error before you go diving into the bureaucracy.
Correcting your Wikipedia article can be a treacherous road that many will fail if they travel it. Before attempting such, know what you are getting into.

Startup companies can qualify for Wikipedia pages if they meet certain criteria, including being the subject of significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the company.
It is possible to create Wikipedia pages for startup companies. If they are notable, the rest is just creating the article according to guidelines.

A little bit of encouragement for those who have run into a wall while trying to edit Wikipedia.
Just a few words of encouragement before you give up trying on your own and seek help creating a Wikipedia page.

Sports vandalism on Wikipedia does not require a professional Wikipedia editor to correct. While often funny, edits such as these are corrected quickly.

Does your Wikipedia article have an ugly tag at the top of it? Understanding how it got there in the first place is the only way to know how to remove it.
Want to remove tags from Wikipedia? Make sure that you understand the process so that you do not run into the Wikipedia bureaucrats while doing so.

Correcting an error on Wikipedia should not be that hard, but there are many things that could stand in the way of getting it done. Instead of going at it alone and getting into an edit war, try following these steps as the proper way to request a correction be made.
Correcting errors on Wikipedia is not an easy task. However, if you know the process, correcting errors on Wikipedia can be as simple as 1,2,3.

A few common reasons why an article would be speedily deleted and a few reasons you can cite that could help save that from taking place.
If your article is tagged for speedy deletion, you need to have a good understanding of speedy deletion defenses for Wikipedia to save the article.

There is no way to get around Wikipedia’s approval process as using its "approval" process is not mandatory. Learn how to post without using bureaucrats.
