Start with Hoover's, a database containing information on over 12 million companies.

From the Hoover's home page, click on the 'Companies' tab near the middle of the screen. Enter the company name and click on the Search button.

You'll find information such as company description, number of employees, key financials, competitor revenues, and more.

LexisNexis Academic is another site you might like to begin with. Look for the search box titled 'Get Company Info' on the main page. Enter the company name and click on the 'Go' button.

If you would like to know more about a particular company, visit our LibGuide titled The Business Profession for a listing of other helpful resources.
