Using filters to search

Applying filters is one of the easiest ways to find what you are looking for in Dealroom.

Filter bar:

The quickest way to begin filtering the data in Dealroom is by typing directly into the

Filter bar. Looking for companies in Europe? Type ‘Europe’ and select it from the HQ Location. You can try this with industries & sub-industries, funding rounds, tags, business models and more.

TIP #1: You can add a filter and then choose to exclude it from the results. For example, if you are looking for European startups outside of your home country (let’s say Spain – hola!), you can add a filter for HQ location Europe + HQ location Spain. Then select the dropdown next to Spain to choose ‘Exclude’.

TIP #2: Can't find an existing tag? Try the keyword search functionality by typing your topic in the filter bar and hitting enter. E.g. you could try:

Combine keyword search with the existing filters for geography, stage, funding, industries, and, more.

Advanced filters

There are so many different ways to narrow down the database and the Advanced filters section is a great place to start. You’ll see all the different filtering options you can add.

TIP: If you’ve added more than one industry/subindustry or tag, you can choose if you want to include results from both or reduce it down to only companies that have both results. Next to the number of startups & scaleups for that page, click Show results for XX and XX only to toggle between the AND and OR options.

Exporting data

Export the data you need for further analysis anywhere you see the “Export” icon.

Whether you are a Premium or trial user, an export is made by clicking on the Save & export or the Just export button on the right of the query bar. Here, you can choose to save, save & export or just export a search.

Choosing to Save & export the search will allow you to return to the set of filters (search) any time: give the search a name and click on the Save & Export button. The search will be saved and you can continue to choose the columns you wish to export.

Tip #1 : The Dealroom export feature accommodates CSV, Excel and Google Sheets.

The data points you choose do not count towards your total rows. These are viewed as columns meaning you can add as little or as many as you like.

You can select all columns (data points) or simply choose the most important ones for your analysis. To export the data, scroll down the window, choose the document type (CSV, .xlsx, Google Sheets) and click on the Export button.

Note: Every tab (startups & scaleups, corporates, investors, etc) has different exportable columns that you can choose from.

Tip #2 Chart to table: You can now transform data from a chart into a table with a single click.

For example, you can turn the stats of all funded companies into a table by clicking “Table View” here. Form where you can copy the table and paste it anywhere you would like (available for premium users only)
