In the last 20 months, there have been 16,601 unique investors and acquirers who have participated in a company financing or have completed an M&A transaction.
What that means is that there are potential acquirers, follow-on investors and syndicate partners that you should be aware of but that even the most networked of folks simply cannot know.
Today, we’re rolling out a revamped Investor-Acquirer Search to make identifying the players you should know dumb simple. This is part of our continued assault on Data Janitor work (see how to visualize industry trends in 5 minutes vs 5 days).
Investor search lets you quickly answer questions such as:
- Who has Sequoia Capital most frequently co-invested with in Series A rounds in the last 3 years? RUN THIS SEARCH
- Which US based investors have participated in early stage (Seed/A/B) European fin tech deals in the last 2 years? RUN THIS SEARCH
- Who are the top acquirers of payments companies since 2011? RUN THIS SEARCH
- Which investor has had the most exits in eCommerce in the last 5 years? RUN THIS SEARCH
- Which corporate investors have been the most active in the digital health space since 2013? RUN THIS SEARCH
Note: you can run any of these searches by clicking RUN THIS SEARCH above. Create a free account here if you don’t have one.
Below, we illustrate step-by-step how to create the last search above
Which corporate investors have been the most active in the digital health space since 2013?
Step 1 – In the Search menu, scroll down and select “Investor Search”
Step 2 – Over to the left of Investor Search are a variety of filters you can use to identify the right investors or acquirers. First, we will go to the “Investor Info” filter and select only corporate VCs or corporation investors since that is what we’re after. This can be seen in the screenshot below.
Step 3 – Next, you’ll navigate to the Company Attributes filters and select Digital Health from the lists. You can also filter on our Industry Taxonomy here or look for investments that have a certain word or phrase.
Step 4 – Use the Financing & Exit filters to set your date range and since you’re interested in investors, you’ll select all “Investment Stage” filters excluding M&A so that you don’t get acquirers. You’ll also put the Deals Date range you want which in this case is the last 3 years.
Step 5 – You’re done at this point. Click “See Results” and let the magic happen. For this search, at present, you’ll see 172 results. You can, like all of our searches, export the results or further refine with the addition of other filtering criteria.
