There are times when we can't find the exact time of when the company was founded. In that case, we scan through interviews, articles or descriptions and do our best to estimate the founding year. If those still don't work, that we'll leave it blank and we'll revisit some time later.

When we can't find the founder's name, we will put the current owner, CEO or President of the company. And we'll put a disclaimer right next to the name. In some cases, we'll leave it blank for now if we can't find someone in a leadership position.
