OpenCorporates: The Open Database Of The Corporate World

Added By mrflip

OpenCorporates aims to do a straightforward (though big) thing: have a URL for every company in the world. They’re also gradually importing government data relating to companies, and trying to match it to specific companies. Few parts of the corporate world are limited to a single country, and so the world needs a way of bringing the information together in a single place, and more than that, a place that is accessible to anyone, not just those who subscribe to proprietary datasets.
