This just came in from Docsstoc CEO Jasn Nazar:
Congrats to the team at both of these fine companies. It can only mean great things will come about for both companies.
We’re very proud to announce that Docstoc has made it’s first acquisition, BestVendor (www.bestvendor.com), the popular community to find the best SaaS and software offerings. BestVendor is a Yelp-like platform with thousands of community-sourced ratings and reviews to help you discover the best online products to start and grow your business. The acquisition accompanies Docstoc hitting 35 million registered members since our launch in November 2007.
These are exciting times for our team here in Santa Monica. I’d like to personally invite you to join the community of professionals at www.bestvendor.com to share your ratings and recommendations of the products that you use most for your businesses. Plus see how thousands of professionals are rating your product and claim your company’s product page.
The press roundup is included below, including a call out quote that encapsulates our vision.
“We want to be the brand people think of to start and build their small businesses. Where do they really go now? People go to LegalZoom to incorporate, they go to some Quickbooks to set up their accounting and maybe they read Entrepreneur and Forbes to get some topical business info. But what is the one universal resource that gives them everything they could possibly need to run their businesses? That’s what we’re trying to build.”
