Building a list is a great way to locate specific types of organizations within a certain area or industry. For example, What companies do consulting work in the Los Angeles area? Or What are the largest health care companies in China? We have several databases that can help with this.
NOTE: You may need to experiment with different search criteria to identify your targets. Databases often use SIC and NAICS codes to designate specific types of industries. Other databases allow you to search for industries using natural language or common terms.
You can also use these databases to identify key executives within an organization.
This database provides information on over 14 million US businesses and is especially useful for locating smaller firms. After you enter the database, click on "U.S. Businesses" and then on "Custom Search" to select your search criteria.
