Ptichbook. This platform is more detailed and has a lot more information regarding round details. The platform also has other features to build lists, market maps, landscapes and access reports and raw data about companies by vertical or any other segmentation. Also provides emails on c-suite. Crunchbase however is an easier tool to use so if complicated segmentation is not required, Crunchabse is a great solution. It's also super fast to access and provides a succinct and easy to read profile view.

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.

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.

Sales Navigator is better only because it provides you with more direct contacts to reach out to. Crunchbase only tells you really the top dogs in the company like c-level execs, not necessarily contacts that you would be having sales conversations with.

Crunchbase has far more company data than LinkedIn Sales Navigator. The thing that it lacks is data on the people at those companies. LinkedIn Sales Navigator also has a better CRM integration, from what I understand. It is more automated. For our strategy, we use both of these platforms. Both are essential for our ABM model.

This question always gets me. In a world with so many database solutions, it becomes quite difficult to compare, its the subtleties. Bigger is usually better...Crunchbase has gone through over 300...300 rounds of funding. In a world where there are so many options, going with the crowd can be the best choice. Going with the money in this case.
