About Company Research

Larger companies are usually easier to research than smaller privately held companies. For many small and private companies you may be limited to information the company releases and/or any media coverage. With some private companies, the only information you can find is about the owners. In those cases, here are two strategies:

  • Identify the owners by name and then research them in news sources and on the Internet.
  • Understand the industry and then evaluate their products/services against the industry.

To find registered business owners, go to the Secretary of State website corporate listings for the relevant state. On the Walker Library page, there are also Research Guides for Public and Private Companies.
