Powerlinx, a new global business-to-business matchmaking company, announced it has closed its first round of seed funding. The company also unveiled its digital platform, which combines proprietary intent recognition technology, Big Data, and advanced needs-matching analytics. Now, through the power of these capabilities, companies can be directly connected to new markets, growth opportunities, new suppliers, capital sources and each other in a far more efficient manner than ever before. The company’s platform, released into beta in early November, has successfully created and introduced business opportunities to its members worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
Today’s businesses, including the 230 million that make up the global SMB market, do not have an effective, trusted online platform with which to find, connect and act with each other. Outside of productivity, bookkeeping and recruiting tools, for example, the global Small & Medium Business Market has been historically overlooked by Web pioneers and developers. These businesses continue to work within inefficient, tedious and expensive processes for research and outreach, along with hiring of outside bankers and brokers, to fulfill their expansion goals. Powerlinx’s cutting-edge platform completely transforms that process by enabling business owners and leaders to discover business opportunities on a global scale.
“Every day at Powerlinx we celebrate the power of businesses to change the world, drive innovation, spur economic development and make a difference. Our platform is the digital manifestation of the business development process, created to support these motivations,” said Doron Cohen, CEO, Powerlinx. “Our mission is simple - to help make small businesses more successful, and to fuel global economic growth. It’s safe to say that there’s nowhere to go but up in the SMB market, and Powerlinx will be the facilitator.”
“Our challenge in today’s market is to find additional applications of the products that we manufacture, from automotive to medical and industrial electronics,” said Michael Kann, CEO, New England Miniature Ball. “I was really impressed by the results that Powerlinx came back to me with, which were all very targeted and specific to our business – it provided simplicity to a degree that I never imagined was possible. I’ve already increased my 2014 business prospects by an order of magnitude, and in a way that I never expected.”
Like an online personal consultant, Powerlinx works with its members, one-on-one, in a secure, virtual environment, to “listen to, clarify and learn” their growth needs. Powerlinx then scours its global network of millions of companies in search of the most relevant and complementary business opportunities. When a member finds opportunities of interest, Powerlinx makes the introduction, enables them to begin a dialogue, and facilitates deal-making.
The Powerlinx global database is fed by leveraging proprietary data mining engines that compile and aggregate company information in select industries and regions. Member needs are analyzed, and Powerlinx’s adaptive matching engine combs the database. Then, utilizing advanced modeling and expert-created rules to make highly qualified connections in virtually any sector, the most suitable opportunities are presented along with their profiles and reasons for selection.

Powerlinx is a community for business owners and leaders who believe that opportunities are everywhere. Our mission is to inspire businesses to grow through relevant, intelligent and valuable web-based experiences that help businesses to identify and achieve their objectives. We’ve built a platform that enables businesses to access new markets, strategic partnerships, capital sources and connections to ensure that they deliver on their goals.
