Company Information

a guide to resources for company information


Private companies are not required to disclose much information, making private company research challenging at best and impossible at worst. The strategies and resources below will help you find whatever information is available.

Company Profiles

The Company directly

Sometimes private companies will share information on their websites or through one-to-one communication.

Company website
If the company has a website, check for press releases, annual reports, financials, contact information, and other details.

Phone or e-mail contact
Reach out to the company by phone or e-mail. The company may be willing to share selected information since you are doing research for educational purposes.

The Industry

Research the industry in which the private firm operates to gain insight into challenges the company and its competitors may be encountering.
