PrivCo Prospecting provides advanced searching for private companies, investors, VC Fundings, M&A Deals, and PE Deals.

PE / VC Funding database PrivCo continues to expand its coverage to nearly one million global private company profiles.  Roughly 15% of the firms are US.  Generally, the firms have $10 million or more in revenue.  PrivCo also collects M&A and funding transactions.  Advanced company searching includes firmographics, growth rates, ownership, and VC Funding.  Other search tools include Investors, VC Fundings, PE Deals, and M&A Deals.

Company profiles are available as PDF or Excel downloads and cover

  • Company Financials – Tables and Graphs
  • Business Description and Company Profile
  • Competitors & Comparables
  • Major Acquisitions
  • Complete Funding History
  • Other Important Details – IPO activity, bankruptcy/restructuring, etc.

Executive coverage is weak with fewer than one exec per company.

PrivCo QuotaAccess to the database begins at $2,388 for the Premium service which is “perfect for short term projects and light usage.”  Quarterly access is priced at $999.  However, access is subject to strict viewing and download caps (see chart of monthly quota on left).  Premium users also receive a restricted version of the search module which contains only standard firmographic selects.  Premium account support is limited to emails.

Enterprise access increases the number of viewable and downloadable records (the count is set in the contract), provides direct access to PrivCo analysts and a dedicated Account Manager, and unlocks full access to Advanced Search.  Enterprise access also supports real-time alerts.  Enterprise access is “Designed for professional and institutional usage.”

One-off reports are available for $199.  Instead of automatically fulfilling company reports, the firm runs them through a one day editorial review before delivering them to clients.

PrivCo plays in an arena that is quickly becoming crowded: Funding databases with one million company profiles, PE/VC funding data, and M&A transactions.  Competitors include Mattermark, CB Insights, and DataFox.  While the other three vendors have all recently expanded into the Sales Intelligence space, PrivCo remains focused on the PE/VC/Investment Banking market.

Clients include Bain Capital, Deloitte, Jefferies, Google, Cooley, American Express, and Korn Ferry.
