Now you can send intelligent email outreach powered by Crunchbase data from the 'Contacts' tab in advanced search. Find the right decision-maker using account-based search filters that indicate growth (like last funding date or IPO status).

To start a search for contact data, click on Search Contacts on the left-hand side of the homepage or by clicking Advanced Search > Contacts.

From there, you'll be brought to the Contacts search:


Here you can view a contact to access their contact information, including email, LinkedIn and phone number (if available). Then send an email powered by Crunchbase’s intelligent email templates or snippets, or push the contact to Salesforce.

You'll notice the available filters will be different than the other tabs so here's a breakdown of what you can search in the Contacts tab:

  • Overview filters include: job title, job department, job level, or name.
  • Organization filters include: organization, description keywords, headquarters location, industry, number of employees, founded date, operating status, M&A status, and IPO status.
  • Organization Financials filters include: last funding date, last funding type, last funding amount, total funding raised, funding status and revenue.

You can also access additional filters via query builder, but note the ability to view in card format and take action on a contact will only be available in advanced search at this time.

Keep in mind, you when searching via the ‘Name’ filter (in the Overview section of Contacts search) it will only search for contacts, not person profiles. At this time, we do not offer a way to view contact information and the person profile in search.

For Free and Crunchbase Starter users, you do have the ability to see up to 2 results that include contacts and organization details. That said, you will not be able to view contact data or access engagement tools (send email or push contacts as leads to SFDC).
