PitchBook is the leading resource for comprehensive financial data, in-depth market reports, and insights spanning the global capital markets. PitchBook can help identify new industries, territories, and accounts to pursue based on where venture capital and private equity are investing, which may make it a good fit for those investors whose thesis leans strongly on upper middle market opportunity.
Grata was built to be the best resource for thesis-driven dealmakers looking to search companies in the middle market. Grata provides a comprehensive company profile with in-depth information from each level of a company’s entire website—including companies that have not undergone an M&A transaction yet.
Our proprietary artificial intelligence gathers information directly from companies in their own words but also translates what those words mean for an investor.
We not only collect website information, our tech knows how to speak a dealmaker’s language. Grata translates language like “tailored solutions” on a company’s webpage to the correct label “services company” and words like “platform” into “software company.”
Companies that fall under the US middle market banner account for 99% of all businesses and 50% of GDP–an overwhelming amount of investment opportunities. But dealmakers first need to identify those companies. That’s where Grata comes in.
Grata has a powerful keyword search-matching search tool. Type in any keyword and Grata will match against the company's entire website, enabling users to surface companies beyond high level industry classifications.
Grata includes evidence of why the company appears in the results as well as a comprehensive preview of the company within the search experience, allowing you to dig deeper or add more filters appropriately to hone in your search.
Grata also has a feature called “Similar Search.”
Grata uses a deep understanding of a company’s website to identify the essence of a company factoring in hundreds of qualitative factors bucketed into groups like products, features, and target verticals, as well as quantitative factors like size and funding.
Clicking one button, “Similar Search” will automatically populate a new list of companies similar to one you were looking at. Better yet, give Grata a list of companies you’re looking at and “Similar Search” will find you the ones you missed.
Don’t miss out on the 5.5M additional companies you can find with Grata.
