List of new corporations (etc.) in New York State
The Division of Corporations (within the New York Department of State) makes available a daily report of newly registered corporations, limited liability corporations, and limited partnerships. It's not EVERY new business in the state, but it's a start.
Here's the service, in DOS' own words:
"The Department of State publishes a daily report of new Corporations, Limited
Liability Companies, Limited Partnerships and Registered Limited Liability Partnerships
and amendatory certificates thereto. These reports are available only through e-mail. The
subscription fees are:
Annual subscription $125.00
Semi-annual subscription 75.00
Quarter-annual subscription 40.00
Your computer must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to review and print the report. You will be notified of the date of expiration of your subscription. Payment must be made by check, bank draft or money order to the DEPARTMENT OF STATE.
If you would like receive a sample report by e-mail, please provide your e-mail
address to Ms. Patricia Rokjer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Upon receipt of your request a
sample will be forwarded via e-mail within 2-4 business days.
