Network Search
This tool is only available to advanced analysts.

  1. Search for person or organization (eg. Larry Summers) whose connections you want to find.
  2. Click their name in the search results.
  3. Click Network Search in the Expert Tools section of their profile page.
  4. Leave all fields blank and click Search to see every person and organization (X) that has a relationship with a person/org (Y) that Larry Summers also has a relationship with. Those indirect links with the most common people/orgs are shown first in the search results.
  5. Make your search more specific:
    • To show only people indirectly linked to Larry, check "Person" as Entity X Type. Check "Organization" to show only orgs or click More types and check specific types of people or orgs to show only those types.
    • Check both Is current? field (1 and 2) to show indirect links based on current relationships only.
    • Find people who are members of the same organizations as Larry by checking "Membership" as both Relationship 1 and 2.
    • Find people who worked at the schools Larry attended by selecting "Education" as Relationship 1 and "Position" as Relationship 2.

Find Connections
This tool is only available to advanced analysts.

Use this search tool to see if one person/org is specifically connected to another person/org, either directly or indirectly through people/orgs they have in common.


  1. Think of two people or organizations you want to connect to each other.
  2. Search for one person/org (eg. Larry Summers) you want to connect.
  3. Click their name in the search results.
  4. Click Find Connections in the Expert Tools section of their profile page.
  5. Enter the name of the other person/org (eg. Goldman Sachs) you want to connect and click Search.
  6. Click Select next to their name in the search results.
    Finger The connection search only includes positions and memberships, with up to 4 degrees of separation.
  7. The closest connections, with fewest degrees of separation, will be displayed first. The names of people/orgs are in bold and the relationships that connect them are written between in parentheses.
  8. Use the navigation buttons to view additional connections.
This tool indicates whether the two people or organizations in your search may have a connection through other people/orgs they have in common, but it doesn’t take into account dates or other factors which indicate a relationship’s strength. For example, two people who sat on the same board at different times may not know each other whatsoever.
