How can I create a list of companies in a specific industry?
Many resources can create lists of companies based on criteria that you establish. Generally the resources listed here will do a good job of creating a list, however, in some cases there may be a different resource that might work better for your need (e.g. non-profits and government agencies can be found in Guidestar and Leadership Library respectively) so please contact us if you have any questions.
The Build A List function available within Hoover's Online will create lists of companies within industries, locations, size, and other criteria.
Capital IQ allows you to create a list of companies by industry, location, number of employees, et cetera. Results can be downloaded into Excel.
