Last month, we launched our interactive timeline feature to help you visually assess key financing events and employ count changes on public and private company profiles. Along with the timelines, we also released a few new search and download options for our expanding datasets on people, companies, debt and LPs. Whether you're looking to research the role gender plays in the PE/VC industry, search for companies by their active ownership status or download debt terms and LP commitment details, we think you’ll find this quite useful.
To make it easier to search by gender in the PitchBook Platform, we added a new section for gender on our advanced people search. This was a frequently requested search option from our clients (thank you!), and we’re excited to deliver on this as more research and discussion emerges on this topic in VC, tech and beyond.
Clients can click on this search to see the 5,886 women at VC firms we track in the PitchBook Platform.
To help you easily search for companies by their current ownership status, we’ve made this status the first option on our Companies & Deals advanced search. The ownership status field is based on these categories:
Clients can click on this search to see over 106,000 privately held companies with financial sponsors.
To enable you to export our new debt terms like debt amount, type, maturity date, interest rate and more, we’ve made debt terms available for users in the PDF and Word downloads on company profiles.
Clients can click on this link to see an example profile with the new debt package details that can now be exported.
To enable you to export additional details we track on LP commitments, we’ve added three data points to our LP commitments template: Commitment Date, Commitment Type and Commitment Status.
Clients can click on this search to see over 1,600 individual commitments made to vintage 2015 funds.
