BIS has created a series of YT clips on how to find information on companies using some of the databases mentioned in this guide. They are designed to get you started in determining if the company is public, private, subsidiary, plus ways to compile list of companies within industries. The Industry YT's are how to search for basic industry reports.

Users can search by Company/Investor name or website in the top search bar
More advanced search options can be found under the Advanced Search heading, which can search private companies, investors, funding, mergers and acquisitions deals and private equity deals, and can be further narrowed down by location, date, industry and other factors.
