About the Company

Craft was founded in London in 2015, on an original idea to build a definitive “Source of Truth” on  companies - as Zillow is to homes, Craft is to companies.

Into this vision, Craft has built the most comprehensive data platform combining more diverse sources of data and insight on companies than any provider in the market.  Craft’s website appears in 100 million organic search results, and delivers value for 2.2 million unique users each month.  Simultaneously, Craft has uncovered significant and under-appreciated white space in Enterprise Supplier Intelligence, which is today undergoing unprecedented transformation.

To large enterprise clients including many Fortune 500 brands and government entities, Craft licenses a modular cloud portal loaded with alerts, insights, integrations and collaboration features, delivering step change in Supplier Discovery, Evaluation, Monitoring and Supply Chain resilience, as well as cutting edge market intelligence for multiple departments across the modern enterprise.  Contracts are 6 and 7 figures, multi-year, and revenue is on track to grow 3X for the second consecutive year.  While many business intelligence products require clients to ‘bring your own data’, Craft’s data platform deploys on day 1 packed with thousands of traditional and alternative data types, resulting in a more powerful 360-degree view of any target company in the world. Beyond supply chain, Craft’s service has proven value in sales, competitive intelligence, M&A research, investment research and other use cases.  Enterprise intelligence is an emerging $100Bn+ market.

Craft’s headquarters are in San Francisco, with just over 100 team-members located in the US, Canada, UK and Europe.
