Crunchbase

Crunchbase is well suited for doing a preliminary analysis of a private company. As a result of the user interface being easy to navigate, analysis can be completed in a quick and efficient manner. The web and mobile app data is also likely to be useful for sales personnel to gauge consumer traffic and interest in companies.

Pros

Crunchbase

  • Funding news - Huge strength to know immediately when a funding round is available.
  • UX/UI super easy to navigate making it a simple tool to use for early sales reps.

Echobot

  • Research Quality versus invested Time is absolutely efficient and motivating. Quick Research or Standard Alerts, both are done easily with instant results.
  • Usability of the User Interface in any of the modules is very supportive. New Team members are trained in short time. Very much self-explaining.
  • The connectivity between the modules is great and saves time. Each module has its key topic, but in Connection with the other modules this practical tool turns out to be even smarter more and powerful.

Cons

Crunchbase

  • Timely data. We also use Owler for company funding alerts. Since Owler scans the web for press releases from the set of companies you follow, it is often more "on time" when it comes to major funding rounds. Crunchbase usually catches up within the month.
  • There are data discrepancies sometimes between a company profile on Crunchbase vs that company's profile on LinkedIn. It could be that Crunchbase is more accurate, but we just don't know.

  • People who have left a company are still listed.

Alternatives Considered

Crunchbase

Crunchbase is the best resource for prospecting startups hands down. TechTarget has a lot of useful info, but I found it to be inaccurate where it mattered most. Crunchbase's data seems more accurate, and is also easier to use. Not the most exact comparison, but they offer similar background information.

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.

Echobot

  • Massive time saver for sales customer research.
