Business model

Business Description:  

Company.com is a where business go to connect with other businesses.  A social site designed for the SMB, COMPANY.com enables your company to promote your products and services, find new customers, save money from participating suppliers, and to gain insight into current business trends and topics.

In today’s climate of social networking and crowdsourcing, companies have to work harder to remain competitive and to nurture productive business relationships.  Many are frustrated that the most popular social sites are designed for the individual, not the business.

Backed by a Vendor MarketPlace, BusinessSourcing (a proprietary RFP platform), business-to-business connections and an expert driven knowledge base, Company.com provides an ecosystem that encourages small to mid-sized businesses to learn, earn, save, and grow.

Registration is free and only takes a few minutes.  Start connecting your business today, visit us at

Problem/Solution: Finding new customers and exchanging marketing campaigns with connected and invited businesses within a business social network community.  Lower vendor costs through special and excusive offers from our supplier relationships with our Vendor Marketplace, as well as “collective procurement” purchasing, while maintaining quality through a vendor approval, quality validation, and certification process.
