Who we are

PitchBook is a financial data and software company headquartered in Seattle, with additional offices in San Francisco, New York and London. Hear from Founder and CEO John Gabbert about our company values.

We‘re on a mission

It all started with seven people working in a 200-square-foot, windowless office. Founder John Gabbert was pursuing an idea his former employer nixed—a database that covered private equity.

In 2009, we launched PitchBook Desktop. With each new dataset and feature, we‘ve expanded and improved. Now, PitchBook tracks every aspect of the public and private equity markets, including venture capital, private equity and M&A.

Our focus has always been—and will always be—our clients. What data matters most to them? What would make their jobs easier? How can we help them make informed decisions?

Now part of Morningstar, we continue to give our clients the data and tools they need to be successful.
