Familiarize yourself with the world of startups from the inside out. Here are 8 recommended startup databases:

- PitchBook – This is another market analysis platform. It is perfect for investors, fund managers, and founders. Here, investors will find information on companies and their previous transactions.
- Crunchbase – One of the most popular platforms with data on public and private companies. Here, you’ll find detailed startup profiles with information about the company’s funding rounds, estimated revenue ranges, and the latest company news. The platform also allows you to integrate the contacts you find with your CRM.
