The private company research database PrivCo is now offered on a trial basis through October 17. PrivCo is a source for business and financial research on major US-based non-publicly traded corporations, including family-owned, private equity-owned and venture-backed companies. PrivCo is searchable by advanced criteria for research, coursework, case studies, and entrepreneurship programs to search for private companies in specific, emerging industries. Career centers also use PrivCo for due diligence, and to search to search for companies that are raising funding and most likely hiring.
