Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I have been using the Tracxn platform for the past 5 years. I cannot think of doing my everyday work without Tracxn and its analyst team. Tracxn helps me doing for deal-sourcing, market research, competitive analysis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love its extensive startup information, and also it covers companies globally. In fact, I sourced several startups from Tracxn, and we invested in those companies. In addition to it, I like their support team and analyst team. They are always prompt to our request and very supportive. I deeply appreciate their service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't have anything that I dislike about Tracxn. One thing I would like to suggest is to cover Japanese startups more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Tracxn saves my time to look for any startup/company information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I regularly use Tracxn to keep updated on the themes I am interested in investing in, identify relevant competition to potential investment opportunities that I come across, benchmark private company performance based on certain operational and financial metrics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Tracxn is leaps and bounds above any other company providing a similar service (Pitchbook, Venture Intelligence, CB Insights, etc.) for one simple reason - detailed industry taxonomy and classification. The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system of classification is simply redundant when it comes to keeping a tab on disruptive businesses and technologies. Tracxn does a good job of this because of its large team of analysts that go through each company in detail before making an objective map of their classification. All the financial information I can extract, analyze and make informed decisions on, is only useful when I am able to identify a cluster of similar companies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The company is positioned as a self-serve database, but the industry definitely can utilize more services from it if they were provided. They lack a team of good subject matter experts that can deliver pristine reports above and beyond extracting data and representing it in simplistic, templatized charts from the database. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

In its current avatar, it is a self-serve tool and is dependant on the user to make the most out of its vast and well-curated database. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Tracxn is built as a self-serve tool useful for keeping a hawk-eye on the fast-changing startup investment landscape. This is my everyday morning go-to tool to keep updated on changes in the startup landscape - from investments, investors, trade deals, etc. in Asia and America (my geographic focus).

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We've been users of Tracxn for 4+ years now, and I'd say the most of the team would utilize Tracxn for various reasons once every day. We use it for sourcing new deals, conducting diligence as well as to support portfolio Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Few things I love: 1) extensive database of startups 2) Well written sector dives 3) Global Coverage Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We have done several new deals that were orginally sourced from Tracxn data. Almost every single diligence we do also utilizes Tracxn Data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

I would say take advantage of Tracxn's a/c management team to discuss your use cases and get proper onboarding. Also don't be shy of using their email support, it's incredible Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Tracxn does good industry reports where they list key trends and companies in a specific sector.

They have a good database of companies and you can search by different targets. A lot of companies on there are pretty small so you have to filter out the tiny, 1 person companies with the more interesting companies. The software platform is good overall and the custom reports are helpful as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The industry reports are not clickable which makes them less useful in research and they include name and location of companies, but it would be helpful to include the number of employees because many of the companies are small and have 1 employee.

The communication is a bit difficult at times as well because the analysts are in India but overall they do a good job of understanding and completing the projects Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

I would recommend that an early-stage VC fund use this in addition to angel list and product hunt to find companies. Additionally, the reports are quite useful and have depth that will help sourcing efforts.

If you are looking for in depth analysis this is definitely the way to go Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
