"Has core foundation, but some feature gaps vs. other platforms"

What do you like best?

Good looking dashboards, neural/graph data formats, etc. Also, the research reports that they publish are quite good. Notably the ones covering the VC landscape in terms of what specific investors are doing in each industry. There's also a news-like quality to reading their reports where they feel more timely than the standard quarterly reports that other platforms such as Pitchbook publishes. In terms of data, overall CB Insights has the majority of core deal information. The sales person was also very knowledgeable on the solution and helpful in discussing what they are working on in terms of product roadmap

What do you dislike?

Doesn't have the plugins and extra functionalities of other platforms such as functions within Excel, Salesforce, etc. Also the contact information isn't as populated as other sites such as Pitchbook. However, after talking with the sales rep it sounds like a lot of these things are on the roadmap

Recommendations to others considering the product

The company is working on building out additional functionality that should allow them to rival sites like Pitchbook, but currently there is a feature gap

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using for tracking companies, deals, industries, etc. Also reading their reports to generate new ideas or catch up on current trends going on in the venture space
