    It is great for investment teams looking for new opportunities. Good for inside sales teams looking for well-funded clients.

    Crunchbase

    Looking to create lists of target companies through the advanced search feature or the query builder if one is planning to reach out to the individuals listed in the profile. Looking for investment and company history information to inform sourcing or competitive landscape research.

    Pros

    CB Insights

    • Transparency - lets me separate the hype from the reality.
    • Real-time intelligence-packed reporting. The graphs and metrics they provide along with their perspectives allow anyone to apply their own understanding and reproduce a nearly identical perspective.
    • Their daily e-newsletter is chock full of intelligence presented in such a fun and entertaining way, it makes you want to pay for it too!

    Crunchbase

    • Crunchbase has an easy-to-navigate user interface. The bar at the top of the screen that shows the different data points available on companies is particularly helpful for quick navigating.
    • The ability to make and import lists and save searches is helpful for customizing the software to your particular needs.
    • The web and mobile app data that Crunchbase offers is very helpful to gauge trends and interest in companies for diligence purposes.

    Cons

    CB Insights

    • Might only suggest more corporate events
    Jackie Bassett | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Crunchbase

    • Notifications - Something similar to TweetDeck would be nice, so that when news breaks it could be an immediate fact.
    • Honestly dont add too much because you don't want it to become more of a social tool with cluttered info, keep it straight to the point.

    They give standard answers. They are not a customer first business. I tried to cancel my subscription after using it for only 1 week as we found the information was outdated and not at all useful. But they would not cancel the year long subscription I mistakenly signed up for

    Alternatives Considered

    CB Insights

    Pitch book was our favorite resource, until we started using CB Insights. CB Insights just has far better coverage and include very extensive private company intelligence too which adds a level of customer insight accuracy that no one else can.
    Chris McCarthy | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Crunchbase

    Crunchbase is definitely bottom of the barrel in this space. At similar pricing models, all competitors I have tried have significantly bigger and more updated databases. Crunchbase may have been great sometime in the past, but they are not worth engaging now.

    Return on Investment

    CB Insights

    • Positive in both volume and detail of the most relevant information upon which to make key strategic decisions.
    • It's not an inexpensive service, but worth the price given the accuracy, timeliness and criticality of the information they are able to provide.
    • Strategy - strategy - strategy! There's no way anyone could gather that much intelligence in just one stop with any other service.
    Jackie Bassett | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Crunchbase

    • Crunchbase has been great and given us a lot of new companies to go after that have received funding and turned into great meetings. We do not pay a ton, so the ROI is great.
    • We have nothing but positive results using Crunchbase and rely on it heavily for prospecting.
    • It might add more value if we get a more expensive or advanced version.
