Please see attached the best response to my question on list of US-based SME companies. I went with Uniworld and it costs under 100 dollars.
Thanks to the members for the responses.
guess the best approach is to start with a list of all US-based
companies that have international investments and then to apply a
certain size-criterion to select SMEs
among them. I know of three sources that can give you the information:
-ORBIS from Bureau van Dijk
-Directory of Corporate Affiliation
far as I know all three have some measure of company size (as assets,
operational turnover, employees, …) that you can use to identify SMEs.
