pitchbook logoPitchBook covers startups, VC and PE-backed companies, as well as mature private and public firms, investors, buyers, and funds.  You can research and target firms by industry or vertical, as well as financing history.

PitchBook’s competitors lists are great for identifying both large and small competitors to firms – great for target company lists when contemplating your career search, as well as company research for your courses.

If your research is ongoing , save your search strategies and company lists within your PitchBook account for future reference, or set up daily, weekly or monthly alerts for new companies that meet your criteria  You may also export a limited number of company records to .xls. This is limited to a maximum of 10 rows daily and 25 rows monthly, so be thoughtful in what you export!
