This is a list of the largest companies active in the Scientific Research & Development Services industry. This differs from market share in the following example:
One business with revenues of $100 million generates 10% of its business from the Scientific Research & Development Services industry. A second firm, with revenues of $20 million, generates all of its business from this industry. In our list, we show the businesses having revenues of $100 million and $20 million, respectively. However, the market share would compare the $10 million in industry-specific revenue to the $20 million: the second company has twice the market share even though it is "smaller" in size.

Equity investment has the possibility for much greater returns, but offers no guarantee the principle will be repayed. Convertible securities combine the two concepts, but is used by private-equity firms rather than main street startups.
