Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
As the initial research uncovered five companies that meet all the requested criteria, we would recommend continuing the research to find 15 more companies meeting the criteria.
Alternatively, we could do a deeper dive and find 30 more companies meeting the criteria.
