It’s harder and harder to make contacts between businesses with all the noise out there on the internet. If only there were a business-only social network. For businesses, in order to make connections to promote deals and partnerships. Good news for all you businesses out there (as corporate personhood has deemed that you are, indeed, people too): Globial is in beta. Globial is a social network just or dealmaking. It isn’t about finding a new job or friends– it’s all about the sales. No matter what you’re selling, Globial will help you connect to other entities looking for it. Small or large, Globial is open to whatever kind of business you have. Here’s the vital information on this emerging, Sunnyvale-based company straight from their CEO Umut Yildirim:

When was your company established?

It has been more than 2 years when we first started to work on Globial.com.

Who comprises your leadership team?

We have MBAs and engineers from top universities that give us the confidence to challenge billion dollar companies. But, more importantly, we have the ability to solve complex problems as a team together. We believe that this is the most durable asset what makes our leadership team and our company unconquerable.

What’s your mission?

We are simply reshaping global business.

We are committed to helping small businesses engage in global trade more easily and with greater trust. We aim to create opportunities for anyone interested in global trade and empower users to easily find information and connect with businesses anywhere in the world.

Are you looking for funding or have you received funding? From where?

We have already been invested by private angel investors who see that Globial is fundamentally changing the way businesses connect and trade with each other. We are currently negotiating for the second round VC funding.
What’s next for your company?
We will continue making global trade “easy” and “trusted” by developing intelligent algorithms, designing the best-in-class user interface and building great teams so that we can continue to execute 10X the speed of our largest competitor, Alibaba.com.
