BeanSprout helps companies find business development opportunities by matching companies together like a dating website, but for businesses. BeanSprout members include professionals interested in establishing partnerships such as reseller, technology integration, co-marketing, and distribution to help build their businesses. Companies struggle to find the right business development opportunities and resort to cold calling/cold emailing and spending a lot of money on conferences or networking events. BeanSprout is changing that by creating a platform for business development like an OKcupid for business. BeanSprout’s key to making business development faster and easier is having information about what partnerships a company is actually looking for. This enables BeanSprout to introduce you to your next game-changing partner. Members fill out a company profile and BeanSprout learns which companies make good potential partners. Matches are presented in the users account and in weekly emails. Members can send a partnership request to their company matches and, if there is mutual interest, contact information is automatically exchanged to discuss the details of their partnership offline.BeanSprout is currently live and available as a paid monthly subscription. Free accounts are also available.
