Who we are

OpenCorporates is the largest open database of companies and company data in the world, with in excess of 160 million companies from over 130 jurisdictions. Our primary goal is to make information on companies more usable and more widely available for public benefit, particularly to tackle the use of companies for criminal or anti-social purposes, for example, corruption, money laundering and organised crime.

As a social enterprise, we are unique in this space, not just by advocating for a better, fairer, more transparent world, but also providing the tools and data to achieve that. We have led the world in making open company data a norm, and are an essential resource for journalists, anti-corruption investigators, law enforcement, and the wider business community.

OpenCorporates is a truly unique company, unlike any you’ll come across. Here’s why:

Our primary goal is to make the world a better place – working hard to make information on companies more accessible, more visible, more useful, for the public benefit.

We’ve bootstrapped our way from 3 million companies to over 135 million over the past 6 years, with a successful, sustainable business model, and are now poised for a major expansion.


Our Values

One team' spirit. We win together, we solve problems together and we have fun doing it.

Beat the odds, and change the world for the better. Our mission challenges existing companies power and anti-social interests. We need to win this fight and we will do it by fostering a user-first mindset, obsessively focusing on the delivery of client success and utility.

Collaborative learning and personal growth. We learn from each other, and strive to be better tomorrow than we are today.

Act fearlessly with pride and passion. Our work is hard – and matters. We trust each other to do our best, to innovate and to take pride in our work. And we support each other when we fail.

If this appeals to you, get in contact, and start making a difference to the world.
