One of my favorite tools for company research is CrunchBase. While it isn’t typically all that detailed, it’s a great way to get a quick overview of many privately held companies–especially startups. Just the information on investment rounds is insanely valuable to me, but it’s far more valuable to entrepreneurs seeking capital and venture investors. They need to know what’s going on in their industry, and CrunchBase doesn’t go deep enough.

In some ways CB Insights seems a lot like PitchBook. They sell data to investors in the form of analytic software, e-mail news subscriptions, reports, and data feeds. This is a much better model than a free website because you can charge a ton for good data. CB Insight’s daily newsletters start at $79/month, and their reports and data feeds can be thousands of dollars. Here’s an example–you can buy a list of dying early-stage tech startups for $4,895. Who would want that? A company that is looking to make acquisitions for pennies on the dollar. CB Insights not only collect proprietary data, but they have proprietary software that makes sense of it. If you’re an investor who does millions of dollars in deals annually (I know YOU probably aren’t at this point), it’s a trivial investment to buy reports or data feeds from CB Insights. If you’re fascinated by the world of startups and venture investing, take a look at CB Insights’ Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a:

At ChubbyBrain they said they liked to hire people as interns before taking them on full-time, so don’t be afraid to reach out if you’re not a perfect fit for any of these positions.
