PitchBook Access

To Access PitchBook

  1. Always use the PitchBook link on the library's website (even after you have created your account).
    • The links on our website include an authentication step that will allow for off-campus access, so if you always use these links you should be able to access any database from anywhere.
  2. Create an account (see image) with your Stanford email address (e.g. @law.stanford.edu won't work).
