In most cases, you should select a public company for your project. Why?
Private companies, on the other hand, are not required to provide any of this information to people outside of the company. This makes it very difficult to find enough information about a private company to complete your project.
The first thing you need to do is select a company to research.

Once you find a company to research, please write down it's Ticker Symbol. There are times it may be easier to search for more information by ticker symbol rather than name.
