Our AI search uses more than just the company’s industry, which is why our comps are more accurate than databases like Pitchbook and Capital IQ. The model looks at many factors like a company’s products and services, end customers, business model, and positioning to determine the closest similar companies. Other data points like industry, size, and growth are also considred.

“We looked at other solutions like Capital IQ– but there was a world of difference between their company data and the information we needed.”
