Looking for free private company research? Private companies are required to file with the secretary of state in the state where the company is incorporated. And you can pick up information from newspaper articles, Lexis-Nexis or other information services, available at a library, for example. And most business information providers offer some free sample company information about every business profiled. But if you want real private company research from a leading publisher of business information, you will need to pay. With Manta.com, at least you don't have to pay much. Per-download prices start at $9.95 per month and top out at about $129, with no membership costs or other hidden fees.
