Business Research

Not sure where to start with your business research? Get an intro for a brief overview of company, industry, market, and supply chain research using the specialized business databases. 

This workflow can help you decide which database might be best for your research:

Are you researching an industry? Look in IBISWorld or Procurement IQ. Are you working in a consumer market? Check Mintel Reports or Frost & Sullivan. Would geographically based survey data help? Try Business Analyst Online. Is this research for a specific business location? Try DataAxle. If you're researching a non-profit or B corp, try Guidestar. If you're researching a private company, look in PrivCo. If you're researching a public company, try Standard & Poor's NetAdvantage, or NexisUni
