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

Crunchbase

The database is actually a very good start when you are doing reseaches on start up companies, fundings or checking out companies in "new" industries that are mostly not covered by big databases like FactSet or Capital IQ. It contain a wide range of information that other databases do not offer however the accuracy of some data are sometimes questionable.

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

  • The technology page is a list of technologies the company uses to make their website not the actual company's tech stack. Would be better to either rename this or list their tech.
  • Add number of employees not just the ones that have a Crunchbase profile.

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.

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.
