2. Search local and regional news. Look for the company's hometown paper.

Use Trade Journals

Trade journals, magazines written for practitioners in an industry, cover news and offer analysis from industry insiders.

They often include profiles of companies too small, too new, or too industry specialized to be covered in the national press.
