Keep your identity a secret as a site selector:

Large enterprises with the resources to do so hire site location consultants. Professionals guard the identities of their clients when gathering information for location data suppliers and analyzing what places of interest have to offer (comparative analysis). They protect confidentiality until their clients decide its time to step forward. Enterprise developers with small businesses are likely not to employ such advisors except, perhaps, to use local real estate consultants. In either case here are a few tips for small companies on the move to confidentiality.

(1) Swear trustworthy resource and service providers to secrecy — tell them what they can pass on to others on your behalf and what not to say. When building new relationships with resource and service providers, give them as much information about the scope of your project and arranges you've made for carrying it out. Suggestion: prepare a project profile but mark it confidential. Use attorney-client privilege as a model for requesting those you ask to vouch for the validity of your project, for example a venture capitalist who underwrites an entrepreneurial startup.

(2) Do draw attention to yourself when visiting and making inspections. For example, Don't wear or handout anything that would lead someone to identify your company. Items with logos, such as lapel pins, often give away identities. Also, You are advised not to use traceable credit cards or to give out addresses, for example when checking in and out of local motels in places under consideration. Set up a blind address, such as a P O Box, specifically for the project.

(3) Don't let employees hear rumors about your project and begin to speculate that you are about to do something that will cost them their jobs.

(4) Remember the the war poster that said: Loose lips sink ships!
