Pitchbook is a database of private market data, focused on venture capital, private equity and M&A deals. There is some public sector coverage, and is a source for Sustainanalytics ESG ratings.
Pitchbook is used for projects like researching startup companies, creating lists of companies, conducting primary market or industry research, and accessing analyst reports on emerging markets or technology. The platform provides tools and features for analyzing the data and users can save and share information once you register for an account.
Pitchbook can help you research trends in a market or industry or find the denominator in your market size estimate because all companies have been associated with an industry or vertical. To effectively use the search it helps to know about the way they use the terms Industry, Vertical, and Keyword throughout the database.
Emerging spaces are areas of new growth and investment that have not yet reached the level of a new vertical or industry. If you can't find an industry or vertical related to your research or project, emerging spaces may help. The information in this area is always changing.
