We're trying to build a data company you'll love by combining the best data with great usability and fantastic service. Below are some comments from our customers who think we're on the right track.
CB Insights' intuitive user interface, analytical capabilities, and detailed investment information create a very powerful tool for our team's research needs.
We are using CB Insights to track dealflow, understand valuation multiples, analyze industry trends and identify comparable companies. We have found the data, analytics and UI/UX to be incredibly relevant and useful. The CBI team takes our feedback seriously and they have continued to refine the product; it is great to see someone innovating in the venture capital data space.
CB Insights has become essential to us at Upfront Ventures. The information detail and accuracy combined with the ease of use makes it a core part of our deal tracking and diligence process.
CB Insights provides our team with easy to navigate, quality data and insights into the ever changing worlds of information technology and healthcare. CB Insights is a great platform that we’ve come to rely on for relevant and timely information about start-ups, funding and venture capital. And, the CB Insights team is number one in customer service.
We leverage CB Insights to analyze sectors and trends of interest to our firm. The combination of comprehensive and relevant data, clean interfaces, and an accessible team make for a product and company we're excited to support.
I love data about venture tech – I represent (as counsel) hundreds of startups, growth companies and funds. I invest in them & the funds that back them, I write about them for the WSJ Accelerators and I teach about them at Columbia Business School.
For me, by far, the most comprehensive, insightful and accurate data for venture capital financings and exits - hands down comes from CB Insights. I’ve cited it in class, during televised interviews, and in my WSJ Accelerators pieces. Moreover, CBI gives you the ability to see things at a macro industry level and then easily drill down into individual companies or investors which is particularly powerful. As we think about industry and geographic shifts and where and who we should be focused on, CB Insights has proven to be a valuable input into those decisions. I'm also a fan of their no holds barred data-driven research. I haven’t seen another provider of data, content and insight into our industry rise to this level of general acceptance and respect by the leaders in our sector.
CB Insights has been of tremendous value to us at Homebrew. We're able to keep track of financing and acquisitions in our industries and geographies of interest. And CBI's data on investors and their syndicates shows us which angels, micro VCs and larger venture funds to focus on for our own network of relationships. CBI data has been critical to increasing our efficiency and improving our processes.
CB Insights provides fast and easy access to accurate and comprehensive industry, private company and investor/acquirer data. In addition to their data and user interface, you get customer support within minutes for every question and custom data request from the people who are building the product and who know what they are talking about. They are changing the way investors access private company information.
CB Insights has become an essential tool in our marketing and business development arsenal at Orrick. It ensures we miss no financing transactions, can easily track VCs of interest and understand industry trends. Specifically, the search, visualization and data feed capabilities have proven immensely useful in making us more efficient. We are spending less time on data gathering and more time on activities that help the firm grow. The CB Insights team continues to develop and enhance the product based on feedback as well which has been great for us.
CB Insights is the first place we look for data on prospect companies – including their investors, competitors, teams, market trends, etc. CBI saves us so much time in efficiently conducting initial diligence and often has data we can’t find elsewhere. We also enjoy using CBI’s analytics as we investigate new investment themes and are able to find all the active companies and investors with just a few clicks. CBI continues to add new features and data that delight our team at SJF Ventures.
CB Insights does a great job for us on two fronts. One, their aggregation of private company financing and exit data is incredibly thorough, and saves us immense internal time finding this on our own. Second, since a picture is worth a thousand words, CB is able to apply the data into intuitive visualizations that help us tremendously with analysis. It’s a powerful product!
CB Insights is a product designed by a VC insider who truly knows the space and understands the end-user needs. In particular, Industry Analytics allow you to see macro-trends at the sector level, providing a top-down look on what is happening in a given space. This, combined with a clean and easy to use interface and a super responsive customer support team makes CB Insights the best option for Comcast Ventures’ research needs.
CB Insights data has become an invaluable resource for us, providing additional visibility into the angel and venture capital activity in our markets. They have the best quality data in the market for anyone looking to get an inside look at private company financings.
CB Insights provides our team with a holistic and thematic approach that really captures market activity. In private markets with fragmented public, private and often blogged deal data to parse through we've found CBI to have the best access for the most accurate market view.
CB Insights is constantly innovating with tools, insights and reports that bring value to the data. More importantly, things like valuation multiple search and the ability to set up dealflow feeds give us unique data-driven insights that aren't available elsewhere. And the user experience is more like using a well-designed product rather than accessing a database. I wouldn't use anything else!
CB Insights has been a great addition to our sales prospecting toolkit. It’s stupid easy to use and helps us identify private companies who are hot and flying under the radar.
Having timely, segmented and accurate information delivered on a daily basis allows us to stay on top of technology companies that may benefit from our services. The segmented data allows us to look at the data in multiple views saving valuable time. The data feed service provided by CB Insights helps to streamline our business development activities.
CB Insights helps streamline data search and analysis about global venture capital and the startup ecoystem. Now we get revelvant and reliable information fast. A great tool for any investor.
CB Insights provides MESA with financing and M&A data that has proven invaluable on both the investment banking and investment sides of our business. Having data feeds delivered to our inboxes on a daily basis saves us a ton of time and uncovers transactions we wouldn't have otherwise known about. And when we need more detail, their web platform provides user-friendly search capabilities that are a refreshing departure from what we typically see in data offerings.
Sagentia has found CB Insights' coverage of private medical device company financings and acquisitions to be both fast and comprehensive. Their deal feed is an excellent and especially useful service for us.
CB Insights is a must have tool for anybody doing investments. As a non-profit, our early stage portfolio companies require a lot of support in order to understand who their competition is, how much financing is typical for their next series round, and who best to approach for financing. Collecting that information manually is limited, laborious and exhausting. With the database at CB Insights we have been able to provide 1000's of hours of equivalent research to support our groups as well as facilitate our ability to evaluate technologies presented for funding. Use it daily.
We have used a number of competitive venture capital database products over the years and they have all had major shortcomings. Our team needs high quality data, intelligently delivered in a consistent and timely manner, with maximum breadth of coverage of technology and healthcare deals. CB Insights is the only product that meets, and in fact has exceeded, our high expectations.
Having been in the venture capital and private equity research industry for almost 15 years, I am thoroughly impressed with the depth, timeliness and accuracy of the data I have found CB Insights to have. And their customer service is equally as impressive. Not many companies handle customer service questions at 11:30 at night. Well done indeed!!
shout out to Anand and team— Greg Bae (@GregBae) August 26, 2012
@cbinsights for disrupting the VC data space and doing it well
We have been subscribers to a number of databases focused on the venture and private equity sectors in our role as executive search consultant. CB Insights offers a unique combination of richness in data, ease of use, and price relief we haven't found elsewhere.
My firm depends on CB Insights to stay on top of the fast moving technology space. The daily Funding Flash along with their easily searchable database provides us with the extra insight we need to find up and coming companies and sectors to invest in.
The data provided by CB Insights allows us to effectively monitor entrepreneurial activity in New York City and further develop the City's many innovation initiatives.

@cbinsights much deserverd! keep up the good work - timely information is worth it's weight in gold
I get a VC deal list daily from a major pub house; recognize all the deals from the day before's email from— Anthony Pergola (@aopergola) July 20, 2012
CB Insights allows us to compare investment trends across industries and learn which sectors are growing innovative companies. Industry Analytics is a great tool that provides analysis at a glance that used to take us much more time to complete.
Mosaic was a tremendous enhancement to Forbes' method of assessing private companies. It enabled us to quickly, efficiently and scalably analyze thousands of private companies and distinguish the best ones from the rest in a way that we actually didn't know was possible. Historically, our process had been analyst intensive which limited the number of private companies we could analyze and review and which was also subject to our own personal biases. Mosaic not only allowed us to expand our scope but uncovered facts about companies such as litigation that we would not have found on our own. Mosaic has not only improved our process markedly but most importantly, it has resulted in better selections and outcomes. We are looking forward to working with the team building Mosaic in the years to come.

@cbinsights and find the MyCB personalized / team feed awesome! Useful as a stripped-down CRM for funding deals
I wanted to take a moment to let you know what an asset your daily newsletter has been to me. I utilize a number of both paid and free resources to keep up to date on venture capital deals and your Funding Flash newsletter consistently provides information I don't see from any other sources. Both the product you provide and customer service behind it have been absolutely top notch. Thank you.
As a premier boutique consulting firm, we advise major ad agencies, media companies, and technology companies in Japan on which US ad and media technology companies to partner with. There are other sources on venture funding, but CB Insights gathers all the elements in one place and keeps up-to-date. Our research time was greatly reduced after we started using the CB Insights service.
I have found CB Insights to be a robust and very reliable source. It is feature-rich, and always current with daily updates. Assistance and suggestions are both easy to come by — they take customer care seriously.
