There are over 200K middle-market companies in the US that are estimated to earn over $10T in revenue and employ over 50M workers. Despite the size of this massive market, there hasn’t been a tremendous amount of attention in terms of intelligence on these companies at both an aggregate or individual level. Grata is a powerful intelligence engine focused on private companies. The company addresses a common problem that business development professionals in private equity, corporate development, and management consulting companies face – the inability to discover relevant, up-to-date information on millions of companies.
