Overall Satisfaction with Crunchbase

We intended to use Crunchbase to identify early stage startups in the biotechnology space with relevant focus and capabilities.
  • None.
  • Data is outdated.
  • Data has significant gaps.
  • Data largely replication of what is easily and publicly available, with little else.
  • Predatory subscription model in which they send no notice for renewal.
  • Antagonistic approach to customers.
  • ROI is largely zero as the data is outdated and with significant gaps.
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.

The data is outdated and has significant gaps. It is mostly a replication of what is easily and publicly available, with little value added. Their predatory subscription model includes no notice of renewal and they are very antagonistic towards their customers.
