The new platform aims at serving one million users within five years. However, according to statements from the CEO of this Portuguese company, “the real revolution is the concept of the service itself. So far, we worked as a network of companies and made easier the exchanges between them. But we have become a social network of companies that will allow companies to interact, not only to sell and buy, but when there is any need for professional dialogue. And this dynamic will result in a reputation model, made through ratings resulting from the interaction on the platform. “
