Question

Is Pitchbook worth the pricing?

It's around $20K/year and requires annual contracts, but it does seem wayyy better than Crunchbase etc. Do you think it's worth the premium they charge?

Maybe.

Pitchbook is quite expensive but still has valuable data and reports that we use frequently. The reason why it's not a definite yes is that you have alternative sources (Crunchbase primarily), that you can get funding data for a variety of companies. For early-stage deals, it's rarely accurate, but for growth-stage deals the funding details - investors, valuation, timing, etc. is helpful. I would say if you're a small fund with limited management fee and focused on early stage, it's tough to justify. If you're a larger fund and you are doing later stage deals where that intel is valuable I think it's worth it.

Very much agree. Probably unnecessary for early stage investors if you're solely utilizing it for funding details bc their data for Series A and earlier is usually incomplete or inaccurate. That said, their reports are great (if they're relevant to you), and they have some powerful tools for analyzing the funding landscape as a whole.
