BA 453: Business Strategy & Planning


Using Pitchbook

Pitchbook features real time data to research and analyze private and public companies, startup trends, private equity & venture capital financing deals, VC and PE investment funds, investors, and service providers across the entire private investment lifecycle. You can also:

  • Save search strategies,  and company lists within your PitchBook account for future reference
  • Set up daily, weekly, or monthly alerts for new companies that meet your criteria
  • Print HTML content and PDF documents/reports

How do I...

Learning how to find and use PitchBook's features to the best effect can take some work. Some basic tasks are described in the documents below, but for much more information, make sure to use PitchBook's Help Center, which is available once you've logged into the platform. 

Thanks to the Goizueta Business Library for the use of their instructional materials. 

Installing the UO VPN

VPN (Virtual Private Network) Service

In order to access certain library resources from off campus, you'll need to use the UO's VPN software. Using the VPN slows your internet speed, so only connect when you need to access resources, and disconnect once you're done.

For more information on installing and using the UO's VPN software, please check the following links:
