Creating Lists of Companies

These are some of the core resources that will let you create a list of companies that match criteria you specify (such as where they are located, their indusries, size, etc.). Some resources are most useful for locating for-profit companies, while others are better for locating nonprofits and foundations, so be sure to select the database that's most relevant to your interests.
