  • 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.

  • I use the free version, and I don't use it heavily so the impact on my business is difficult to measure.
  • This is one of many tools that I use in prospecting and researching leads or companies that I follow, and I would not want to be without it.
