Who We Are
BizMiner (the Brandow Company, Inc.) was established in 1990 as an economic development consulting operation. In the course of dozens of major engagements, founder Jonathan Brandow discovered gaps in available industry data that restricted thorough going local and regional analysis. When Jon decided to transition the company to online research in 2002, he based a new entity—BizMiner – on the provision of hard-to-find, granular quality data. Today hundreds of subscribers and thousands of customers attest to the success of that effort. BizMiner’s quality products have been recognized by professional associations, the Internal Revenue Service and Business Week, among others.
In October 2007, BizMiner acquired and rebuilt Bizstats, the internet's premier free content industry financial research site.
BizMiner is owned and operated by Jon Brandow, a graduate of Brown University (1973) and the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Center (1987). Prior to receiving his Master’s, Jon worked as a welder in the shipbuilding industry, serving as steward and then president of the Shipbuilders Union at the General Dynamics Shipyard in Quincy MA (1976-85).
BizMiner has been based in Camp Hill, PA since its establishment in 1990.
