Contacts Are Now On Crunchbase: Find and Engage with Decision-Makers All in One Platform

How many business intelligence tools do you rely on to close one deal? By the time you’ve found accurate contact information for a decision-maker at the right company, along with relevant information to include in your outreach, you’ve probably opened 10 different tools. There’s no easy way to go from account discovery to prospect outreach in one place.

Until now.

With the addition of contact data and our new engagement suite, Crunchbase is more than just a place to discover fast-growing companies, it’s an all-in-one prospecting solution. Here’s how you can find and qualify new companies, identify decision-makers, and reach out — all from Crunchbase.


Discover companies that fit your criteria

The most effective dealmakers take an account-based approach to prospecting. By focusing on companies that meet their criteria (e.g. funding stage or growth rate), they save time prospecting and increase their likelihood of success.

Crunchbase enables account-based prospecting in several ways:

  • Company discovery: Receive automatic company recommendations based on your territory, lists, and unique activity.
  • Account qualification: Leverage intelligent insights to quickly understand which companies are growing, including signals like firmographics, funding data, select partner data, and more.
  • Ongoing intelligence: Get automatic alerts on company activity from your saved lists and searches to stay in the know on key companies.

See how Crunchbase Pro can help you find qualified companies and close deals in a single platform.

  • See the number of available contacts: View the number of contacts available on company profiles or within search.
