Search Services

Custom searches

VentureRadar's custom search service provides a rapid and effective way of finding companies that can impact your business. We work with some of the largest corporations in the World, helping them to understand markets, locate solution providers for internal challenges, and identify potential M&A targets or partners.

In 2018 we connected more than 5,000 companies globally to our clients via custom search projects, helping them to develop business relationships that would otherwise take longer, cost more, or would never have happened at all.

Our projects span all sectors and technology areas and can be global or focused on specific countries or regions. Common types of challenges we help with are: Market landscaping; Identifying solution providers; and M&A / Partner identification.

Identify companies in a specific market or emerging technology area, and understand the market.

Identify companies with technology or expertise that can solve your specific business or innovation challenges.

Identify companies that fit specific criteria you have for M&A targets or as potential partners.

Example projects

Our experience

We can search for companies of any size depending on your specific criteria:

Early stage companies from founding

Companies with up to around 250 employees

Large companies with 250+ employees


Our service is supported by the technology system we have developed for trawling the web to discover, retrieve and organise information on companies. Our analysts use this system to rapidly screen and identify large volumes of potential candidates for your search, ‘priming’ our whole process with a high volume and quality of potential solutions providers. This allows us to operate at a scale and speed that has traditionally not been possible.

Key benefits

By leveraging our technology we can scan millions of sources to find solutions. Our methodology draws from a wide universe of potential candidates and can be carried out rapidly.

Custom searches are powered by our technology and are also directed and screened by an experienced analyst to prioritize the most relevant candidates and contextualize their relevance.

All our searches are carried out in confidence, meaning that there is no need to publicise the nature of your internal development efforts or competitive strategies.

Our pro-active methodology is equally efficiently applied across all sectors, meaning we can offer a consistent standard of results from search to search.

We cover all sectors, meaning we can help you solve challenges in your existing markets or uncover technology, expertise and innovations from outside your normal area of expertise.

We discover companies across the globe or we can focus on specific countries or regions if that is your focus.
