Creating and saving searches

Get the most out of the database and find what you're looking for

Finding the data and companies you need can be quickly done by choosing from a wide variety of advanced filters through the Advanced filters button, typing a keyword into the query bar and/or by using the dropdowns in the column headers. The combination of using advanced filters and dropdowns will allow you to have a clearer and more granular view of the data you need. 

Searches can be created from the startups & scaleups, corporates, investors, funding rounds and all sections under the More tab. 

Note: Do take into account that each section will have different filter options and thus produce different results. 


A search can also be saved and exported right from table view. To save and/or export the search click on the Save, save & export, or Just export button on the right.
