Unparalleled Completeness, Freshness, and Accuracy

5-step process combines technology with human supervision for game-changing data quality.

Crawlers and researchers work methodically across 115.000+ sources to find and ingest data.



Normalizing and structuring data is critical to get the data model right, and ensures users can create reliable connections across companies and verticals. Our dimensional data model creates linkages across companies, sources, investors and people.



Data analysts QA and enhance data in a way technology alone cannot. The data operations team assists with labeling and interpretation, which paves the way for machine learning and training to scale this process.



SourceScrub’s engineering and product team package data so it is accessible in a range of formats, including: web platform, web extension, CRM integration, direct data feeds into data warehouse, or REST API calls into proprietary applications.



Stale data can be misleading. SourceScrub’s data set is reviewed monthly and data points are refreshed and QA’ed so SourceScrub data is consistently fresh and accurate.

4-Dimensional Data

Our approach to data starts with a deep understanding our our customers' goals. We built a 4-dimensional data model to help customers quickly find, research and connect with privately-held companies. This purpose-built approach gives users exactly what they need to be successful.
