Some ways to find information about business owners include browsing Secretary of State business entity searches, conducting a search on the Better Business Bureau website and looking through public records. Records such as business licenses are available for the public to view.
The Secretary of State Corporation and Business Entity Search website provides information about any business or corporation in the United States. The only information needed for a search is the state in which the business is located and some general information about it, such as a URL or business name. There are two search bars on the website that make searching keywords easy. This site is not affiliated with government entities.
Searching public records for business licenses is another way to find information about a business owner. Different states have different types of records, and their information may include new business filings, corporate filings, status of business licenses and business trademarks. Many of the records also give basic information about the business owner with the license.
The Better Business Bureau is a good resource for learning about a business and its owner. Visitors can choose a location on the front page and search for a business by name, URL, email address or phone number.
