PitchBook
Chose PitchBook
PitchBook is by far the more reliable source for non public companies. This helps a lot in the entrepreneurial and Venture Capital space.

Other platforms may be better suited for other tasks that are not related to SMEs, VC, or Startups.

Integration with MS Powerpoint is one of my first recommendations, it is an advance to be able to integrate FactSet with other products to be able to expand the capacity of accounting departments. The scalability of FactSet is amazing and is related to its integration plugins. The ROI achieved through FactSet also continues to motivate me to recommend it.

PitchBook
If you are a company or an individual that needs reliable information about SMEs or startups, this is the best platform for you to get this information in a very efficient way. If you are just doing a basic due diligence to see active VC funds, figuring out valuations or companies in one industry, or just getting general information about an industry, it is probably better to get it from somewhere else on the internet. The reasoning behind it is that PitchBook is very expensive as opposed to other options out there.

I think the data delivery could be improved, but it's a good data set.

The overall support for PitchBook is about average. It is not excellent for two primary reasons. First, PitchBook can run slow from time to time, and I cannot copy and paste from the Chrome extension. I have found neither of those issues to be a function of the computer I am using. However, the PitchBook support team has proved helpful on several occasions.

We actually use both. CBInsights we use more regularly for market capture, and PitchBook when we are actively seeking acquisitions.

PitchBook
  • Saved us from investing with an incorrect valuation (multiple times)
  • You need to pay per license per user. It is definitely expensive for a small accelerator.
