    Looking for some advice as to ways that I can find businesses before they actually launch. Especially those that will have a physical location(brick and mortar) but would spend more time in the field offering services to mostly Consumers but also businesses.

    The only option i can advice is contacting some rent or design companies which these launching businesses might use.

    You could look at planning applications in your local paper or on your local council website. applying for planning has to go out to public consultation before they get approval, does in the UK

    In the UK we used to get new business data from tompson directory (as a paid service) and it converted extremely well (for IT leads).

    Aside from that you could get creative - company registrar, logo designers, offices leases.... Try to find info from anywhere that a new business might first touch base...

    Many times in new spaces, they will announce what is going in there a few months before they open. Look for places like these.

    Thanks for all the advice so far. I have used an online service called the Dodge Report, but its expensive and you usually have to go through the building contractor.

    most businesses will announce if they have something new coming. You just need to be on the look out, read the newspapers and the daily reports and maybe you can locate one. also it is always a rule that the businesses announce any service or tender that they may need for people to apply legally, through this then you will be sure to get it. that works in my country but I dont know about where you are from. all the best

    To find such a business you should use your own creativity and logic. Because no one without you knows your current situation. So, Think and Do that.......
