Overall Satisfaction with Crunchbase

Crunchbase is being used primarily, although not exclusively, by the research division within my organization. When conducting diligence on companies, Crunchbase serves as a source of quality information on companies. Because of the wide breadth and unique data points Crunchbase offers, the software is a crucial provider of data that my organization is not able to find elsewhere.
  • 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.
  • There is not much support for a mobile interface. The interface on mobile devices is difficult to navigate.
  • Sometimes, there is not enough detailed data on private companies, which is the primary reason my organization uses the software.
  • Data can sometimes be out of date. For paid software (my organization has the Pro version), I would expect the data I am viewing to always be correct.
  • Crunchbase has enabled my company to be more efficient in determining whether or not to conduct further diligence on companies.
  • Tailoring searches for certain criteria has been helpful for aggregating competitors and companies of similar profiles.
  • The software is not only powerful, but also affordable!
I create detailed analyses of companies for my superiors to read and form an opinion around. While Crunchbase does not provide all of the data and information required for such lengthy reports, the software consistently provides vital content that significantly enhances the quality and rigor of my reports. In sum, through augmenting my reports with other databases and proprietary information, Crunchbase meets my reporting needs.
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.
