Introducing Similar Companies from Crunchbase

What do the deals you’ve recently closed have in common? 

Companies that resemble recently closed deals are often great targets for outreach. The problem is, defining search parameters to find companies with similar profiles is tedious and time consuming.

That’s why we created similar companies, a new feature that leverages machine learning to automatically uncover the accounts you should know about.


Discover and qualify accounts without interrupting your workflow

Crunchbase profiles have a new tab called ‘similar companies’ that utilizes our unique machine learning model to automatically surface similar accounts and possible competitors for the profile you’re viewing. Use the ‘similar companies’ tab on company profiles to:

  • Discover must-know accounts: Uncover new opportunities that share key attributes like industry and growth signals.
  • Qualify right where you are: Leverage company descriptions and firmographic information like revenue and size to quickly qualify without leaving the profile you’re on.
  • Own net-new accounts in your CRM: See which companies are already in Salesforce and save unclaimed accounts to your CRM in seconds.

Fill your pipeline with new opportunities

With similar companies, it’s easy to identify the right prospects based on similarities to the companies you care about. But, how do you take action to turn the leads you’ve qualified into opportunities? First, save companies to Crunchbase lists directly from the ‘similar companies’ tab. Then, get alerts so you’re the first to know when key buy signals happen and can reach out with the right message at the right time. 

Crunchbase Pro and Enterprise customers also have access to Crunchbase’s verified contact data and engagement suite enabling them to connect with decision-makers, all in one platform.
