Crunchbase

We've found it to be the most comprehensive tool to keep up-to-date on individual company and sector-level funding activity. The data generally is also of high quality. It is likely not the best tool for real-time alerts if that is a requirement by the user.

NetProspex is particularly well suited to help your organization keep up an accurate database. It helps to use the NetProspex tools at least once a quarter to help maintain accuracy. It also helps to fill in any incomplete records that could slow down your business process, and it eliminates barriers during the sales funnel.

Pros

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.

  • Help maintain updated records.

Cons

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.

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 I tried to cancel my subscription after using it for only 1 week as we found the information was outdated and not at all useful.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

Crunchbase has a free version that provides the basic data that you should need in analyzing and reviewing companies. The list of private equity or venture backed firms in this database is so comprehensive and very up to date. The industry catergories are also updated with new trending industries that most databases do not cover.

We used Zoominfo before to help search for new leads, or leads similar to ones that were already in our database. We've found that Zoominfo may have had more records overall, but their data was not as accurate. We were also looking for a tool that could help evaluate our current leads on a more regular basis, something which Zoominfo could not provide.

Return on Investment

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.

  • We save time and money having sales people trying to complete and update records.
