  • From my experience as an entrepreneur and private company investor, the best private company database for finding private company financials and revenues is PrivCo.

    There may be inferior ones that charge nothing, but if the data you need is valuable to you, and your time wasted is too, my experience is PrivCo is my first place to use. Most companies over 50 employees or $5 million in annual revenue are on there. If not, I suggest very precise web searching and crossing your fingers. Good luck.
