Overall Satisfaction with Crunchbase

I wanted to find a database that would let me find early-stage tech startups in the UK for both me and my clients. Finding reliable data sources is tough as they usually rely on a company investing in both good tech to create the data and real humans to check it and add context. Often it is just one or the other, rarely both.
  • User friendly
  • Good filters
  • Exporting data out is easy
  • Not enough data on UK businesses.
  • Not much context in terms of individual businesses maturity stage.
  • Categorisation of firmographic data widely varies and often wrong such as industries.
  • It certainly was a good starting point.
  • Helped build targeted data for sales prospecting.
  • Covered cost.
  • Limited use case as a database for the UK is fairly small.
  • Tagging was poor so slowed down list building.
UK based business, good data, great insights.

Great if you have no data and need to find a starting point but it’s too US-centric. There’s not enough investment into finding data on UK-based businesses.
