Are you looking for information about companies in the United States?
Finding US company information can be difficult.
That’s because there’s no centralised official company information database in the US. US companies are registered mostly at the state level, so there’s a company register for each state – plus another for the District of Columbia and others for US territories.
More than 50 company registries operate in the US, all of which collect different data about companies incorporated in the US, structure the data they receive inconsistently and make data available in different ways.
It’s hard therefore to get a single unified view of the companies that exist in the US and who they are connected to.
To help you navigate the company landscape in the US, below is a helpful list of all official company registers.
Search for a company across the US in one go
The data in US company registers is siloed. This means if you wanted to use them to search for a company name across the whole of the US, or if you don’t know which state a company was incorporated in, you’d previously have to manually search each register in turn to find what you’re looking for (something you probably don’t have time for!).
Helpfully, company data from 50 US company registers (Illinois coming soon) has been collected, unified according to a standardised schema and made easily searchable via the open database of companies on our website – allowing you to search across (almost!) all the US at once.
