NCBiotech Library Offers PitchBook Database

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- North Carolina’s life science community now has a new way to glean inside information that might help with funding and business strategy. It comes via the North Carolina Biotechnology Center library’s subscription to the PitchBook private equity and venture capital database. By scheduling an appointment for an in-person visit to the library, users can scour PitchBook information on more than 42,000 investors and over 200,000 deals.  The library is on the second floor of NCBiotech’s headquarters in Research Triangle Park. First-time users get the first hour free. Rates vary thereafter, starting at $150 an hour.

The PitchBook platform provides powerful tools for entrepreneurs seeking investments as well as for life science investors, information collectors, students and service providers.

Users can search for partnership opportunities, investor interests and deal histories and track competitors’ fundraising activities.
