3 Use Cases the New Crunchbase 4.0 Can Help Support

Article author

Crunchbase's new API v4.0 delivers familiar entities and expanded data fields, but accessing them may look different. 

Here are 3 of the most common use cases and how to achieve them more efficiently with API v4.0:

  1. Enrich Specific Data Via Entity Lookup API or Search API:
    • Using the Entity Lookup API:
      • With the Entity Lookup API (e.g. /entities/organizations/{entity_id}), you can request information for a specific entity (e.g. Airbnb) and specify which data fields and relationships are returned.
    • Using the Search API
      • If you do not need relationship information, you can also use our Search API to retrieve data fields for multiple entities.
  2. Prospect for Companies
    • The prospecting power of Crunchbase Pro is now available in API v4.0 via our new Search API (e.g. /searches/organizations). With the Search API, you can now define a specific search criteria in the request body to return only the entities that match your search criteria.
  3. Ingest All Crunchbase Data Within A Collection
    • With API v4.0, you now have the option to ingest all of our data via the API by using a combination of keyset pagination and the Search API. 
    • Note: if you prefer to ingest our data via a CSV, you can still do so with our CSV endpoint.
