Tracxn is an analyst-led platform that provides curated profiles of 100,000+ startups across 230+ sectors globally through its powerhouse of 150+ analysts and works with more than 200 funds and corporates across the globe including Sequoia, Accel, Google, Facebook.
Tracxn does good industry reports where they list key trends and companies in a specific sector.
They have a good database of companies and you can search by different targets. A lot of companies on there are pretty small so you have to filter out the tiny, 1 person companies with the more interesting companies. The software platform is good overall and the custom reports are helpful as well.
What do you dislike?
The industry reports are not clickable which makes them less useful in research and they include name and location of companies, but it would be helpful to include the number of employees because many of the companies are small and have 1 employee.
The communication is a bit difficult at times as well because the analysts are in India but overall they do a good job of understanding and completing the projects
Recommendations to others considering the product
I would recommend that an early-stage VC fund use this in addition to angel list and product hunt to find companies. Additionally, the reports are quite useful and have depth that will help sourcing efforts.
If you are looking for in depth analysis this is definitely the way to go
