October 10, 2017
Seattle, New York, London –October 10, 2017 – PitchBook, the premier data provider for the private and public equity markets, today announced the addition of push notifications to PitchBook Mobile.

PitchBook’s expansive database of private company profiles has the most detailed information on an organization’s investment history and now boasts more than 340,000 revenue figures. These hard-to-find company financials are easily accessible on PitchBook Mobile, enabling users to stay current on global private companies, act quickly on new fund opportunities, perform rapid due diligence in the field and facilitate smarter negotiations – anywhere, any time.
“We know our customers are constantly on the move and need hard-to-find private markets news and analysis fed to them in real time, all in one place. This is why push notifications were a key priority on our mobile roadmap,” said Alex Legault, associate director, of products at PitchBook. “Our team is on the prowl 24/7 for new filings, deals and insights that keep our customers armed and ready to pull the trigger or walk away from the table. By utilizing push to give them the latest news and reports they are looking for, we can make sure they have the latest insights they need, every time they walk into a room.”
This is the latest in a series of mobile-focused features released by PitchBook to help grow the mobile workforce of the private market investment space. The company expanded its mobile data to include 266,000 financials of emerging private companies in February, making the app one of the most comprehensive resources for on-the-go private market data. PitchBook Mobile is an award winning offering, recognized twice by SIIA CODiE as a “Best Information Service Delivered as Mobile App,“ for its seamless and intuitive user experience. PitchBook Mobile’s adoption increased by more than 35 percent over the last year and the company plans to continue to find more ways to proactively surface insights to customers via the mobile channel in 2018.
“With PitchBook Mobile, I’m able to prepare for upcoming meetings while on the move, which has allowed me to have better, more valuable conversations with managers and entrepreneurs,” said Erik Sebusch, private markets investment consultant at Mercer Investment Consulting. “I’m also able to use it during meetings to specifically target company discussions and understand the ‘6-degrees of Kevin Bacon’ in my network. Just recently I received the compliment, “Wow, you have really done your homework”, and all I did was look up a profile minutes before walking into a meeting. PitchBook’s mobile experience is easy to use, convenient and is only getting better. I look forward to future version enhancements.”
