Our Story

Steward was built out of necessity. Working in sales and business development roles at startups, we had to move very efficiently (and hit lofty sales targets). Every time we'd enter a new market, it would take days, sometimes weeks, to gather sufficient data to understand the competitive landscape and identify our target prospects. Data became a primary bottleneck. After outsourcing simple research and getting poor results, we figured there had to be a more efficient way to conduct accurate sales research at scale. Fast forward a couple of years and today we run one of the most accurate b2b data research firms. Steward was created around the simple premise that sales research should always be accurate, fast and accessible to all sizes of sales teams.

Our Guiding Principles

At our core, we're a technology company focused on building incredibly unsexy tools to scale data quality control within b2b sales organizations. To help us reach our goals, we have a few fundamental beliefs that we'd like to share with you.

Contact Databases are inherently inaccurate.

Most data providers invest $$$$$ to build a database with millions of contacts, but 99.9% of those contacts are irrelevant to your business. Also, B2B data becomes inaccurate at a rate of around 5% per month. Keeping up with that sounds a little too crazy for us.

We build technology to scale QA, not source data.

Our goal is to be the most accurate resource for b2b sales data. To get there, we've decided to focus all of our efforts on building a suite of internal tools to ensure all data reaching our customer's computers is 100% accurate.

Accuracy is our #1 priority, so we thought we'd create a data quality guarantee.

We 100% guarantee our data quality. If any data happens to be incorrect we'll promptly fix it or issue you a refund. That's it. Super simple policy.

We're commited to helping SMBs grow.

We've been in your shoes. We know what it's like to have the pressure of investors and/or cash flow forcing you to race toward lofty sales goals. That's why we never ask our clients to sign lengthy monthly contracts or commit to a huge investment. Let us know what you need, when you need it and we'll get it to you quickly.
