Company profile

Learn how to find companies based on their industry, company name, official registers, and many more!

The company profile category includes several filters that tell something about the company's character. You can use these filters, for example, as a starting point for your dynamic list.

How? 🧐

We have gathered all the filters that describe the character of the company under Profile

 ➡️ Company name  

You can find companies, which name includes, for instance, a particular word. This can be handy if you want to search for, e.g., filial companies (or exclude them).

➡️ Business entity 

Are you interested, for example, only in organizations or public limited companies? Business entity filter is the answer for that! 

➡️ Vainu Custom Industry

Vainu Custom Industry describes what the company is actually doing compared to the official industry information. Vainu Custom Industries contain 800+ industries, which you can combine to create accurate target segments. 

➡️ Company keywords 

When official industry classifications don't fill your need to find companies with a specific type of focus, the company keywords filter is the answer. It is a simple yet efficient way for finding specific types of companies: type in any search word (e.g. cleantech, SaaS) and Vainu will search all the companies that mention the word in their company description.

➡️ Industry 

You can find companies in certain industries, and pick the ones relevant for your business by using the industry filter. The industries are based on standard industrial classification ISIC.

➡️ Founded & registration year 

Find, for instance, companies that are having their 30th anniversary, recently founded or recently hired their first employees. 

➡️ Teleoperators (Only available for Sweden)

This helps you to find companies using a certain teleoperator. 

➡️ Networks

Networks include interesting listings from events, members of certain organizations, partnerships, and other networks. You can find, for example, companies that have attended Slush or are listed as Gazelle companies. 

If you don't find the listing you are looking for, let us know in the chat and we will investigate if it is possible to add your desired network to Vainu! 

➡️ Registers 

With the help of registers, you can find companies that belong to certain official registers, such as government suppliers or if they are registered for export. 

Please note that some of the filters are only available in certain countries.❗
