Introduction to Middesk

Our objective at Middesk is to consistently deliver our customers the most accurate, complete, and up-to-date information about a business at all times. The Middesk API is a great vehicle for us to do that. This section lays out a framework for how we think about business entities, explains how that informs the design of the Middesk API, and lays the foundation for how to build with Middesk.

In the real world, businesses are not static entities. As you engage with your customers or partners over time, each will have new Registrations, Addresses, Names, and more. Whether you are ensuring the compliance of a customer or evaluating risk for underwriting a financial offer, Middesk constantly evaluates the identity of a business to push you new and relevant information.

The API uses a single primary object: the Businesses object represents the business entity that you are engaging with. Each Business has a number of different Resources, each with their own attributes, which can be used in a number of different evaluation or compliance scenarios, or to drive different programmatic workflows.
