Zoominfo is a sales and marketing intelligence company. In the original business model, it sold access to its database of information about business people; its initial customers were human resources professionals, and people interested in targeting ads to business people. In 2005, the company stated that it had information on about 25 million people and 1.5 million companies; by 2007 it said it had information on about 40 million people.
