I've had a ton of success using Searchfunder access to IBIS reports for investment thesis research. It's the first step of my interns' research process each week. Select an industry, pull up the IBIS report, identify key growth drivers, Google for more info. Really appreciate the explanations in the "demand determinants", "market segmentation", and "questions for owners" sections as places to dig into more.

Has anyone developed a strong process around using BVR or Data Axle? I haven't found them as useful but I'm sure there's functionality I'm missing. How have you incorporated these other tools into your regular search operations?
