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.

DealRoom
Well suited for projects where a large number of files need to be securely exchanged with clients. Not very suitable if the engagement does not involve heavy data exchange. We have used it in multiple M&A and due diligence projects and it works like a charm. I strongly recommend DealRoom

  • 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.

  • Fixed cost pricing is unique and refreshing. Saves headache and worry throughout the process and with the client.
  • Internal Diligence Tracking through the requests feature is a game-changer. Prevents inefficient excel trackers and unnecessary emails throughout the process.
  • GUI and interface are clean and easy to use.
  • Customer support and response to inquires is timely and helpful.

Cons
Crunchbase Inc.
  • 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.

  • DealRoom doesn't currently have an option for automatic weekly user analytics. I hope to see this feature implemented soon.
  • The software is easy to use, as mentioned before, however, utilizing the setting buttons for folder structures can be difficult to understand at first.

Support Rating
Crunchbase Inc.
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 I tried to cancel my subscription after using it for only 1 week as we found the information was outdated and not at all useful.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
Crunchbase Inc.
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.

DealRoom provides a superior product. We select DealRoom for most of our engagements mostly due to the advanced Due Diligence capabilities that it provides. However, the ease of use, speed, and simplicity of the product are also factors that inspire us to choose DealRoom as our "go-to" provider.

Return on Investment
Crunchbase Inc.
  • 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.

  • It helped us manage documents and share info between our firm and the potential investors and clients. And also helped to manage internal processes and keep an eye on everything in the company.
