How does Scoutely complement Crunchbase?

There are several ways to discover early and later-stage start-ups for partnering:

  • You can talk to the ones you accidentally find or who reach out to you.
  • You can publish start-up collaboration opportunities on your website or on open innovation platforms.
  • You can hit Google. Or browse databases from, for example, Dealroom, PitchBook, F6S, and Crunchbase.
  • Or, you can outsource the search to consultancies, scouting service providers, and list brokers.

Scouting for start-ups is expensive and suffers from an inherent data quality problem.

The financial commitment for external services (out-of-pocket cost) or internal resources (salaries) can be as much as Euro 250.000 per annum.

What's more, start-ups come and go and change overnight. That's the nature of the beast. So, start-up profiles are incomplete by definition.

Imagine if you knew which start-ups were researching collaboration for goals like yours? That could boost your hit-fit ratios and lower the search cost.

With collaboration intent data, you can.

These represent a huge opportunity to change start-up discovery for the better. 

Companies can connect with the right start-ups at the right moment. Start-ups will appreciate the company's responsiveness saving them much time.

Scoutely is the only platform that collects intent data.

Scoutely not only stacks and integrates multiple start-up sources to cast a wider net. It's also the only platform that collects collaboration intent data to complement the scouting output. And increase the data accuracy and completeness.
