Starting your own business means understanding the industry and knowing who your competition is. Lakeland Library has many resources, available both in print and electronically, to help you research this information. One such resource is the NexisUni database.
The information on this page is designed to guide you through the process of researching a particular industry and compiling a list of local competitors using the NexisUni database.
The first thing you will need to find is the NAICS code for the industry of your proposed business. You can find this information by doing a search at https://www.naics.com/.
You can use NexisUni database to create a list of competitors.
Now that you have a complete list of competitors, you are ready to save the file.
If you need additional information about local competitor businesses, you can use Google Maps to search.
