Entrepreneurial Research Resources for Private Companies

When conducting entrepreneurial research, one of the most important components is finding information on competitors, or competitive intelligence, as well as financing/funding information, usually in the form of private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) financing. Many times during this process it is discovered that information is needed on private companies. This is especially the case when entrepreneurs are interested in new, emerging, or niche markets. Private company information can be very difficult to obtain.
