Access Crunchbase Data

Integrate Crunchbase data into your business, perform analysis, and build applications

Daily Excel Export

API v3 will soon be deprecated

We will be launching our new API v3.1 in mid-late September. Once API v3.1 is launched, API v3 will still be available for three months, but we will no longer be pushing updated data to it. In preparation for this change we have launched a beta of API v3.1 for you to begin integrations to the new endpoints. We have created a summary of change with updated documentation to help with this transition.

Explore Crunchbase data in a convenient Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The Daily Excel Export is updated each morning and includes lists of funded companies, funding rounds, investor details, acquisitions, and IPOs. The complete export is available to users with Enterprise or Applications Access.

The export makes identifying business opportunities and performing analysis easy. However, it is NOT intended to be a replacement for the full REST API.

The Daily Excel Export contains the following worksheets:

  • Funded Companies - All venture-backed companies in Crunchbase
  • Funding Rounds - Detail for each funding round in the dataset
  • Investors - Active investors including organizations and individuals
  • Acquisitions - Detail for each acquisition in the dataset
  • IPOs - Detail for each IPO in the dataset
