We believe that growth comes from strong parthership, rather than individual efforts. How do you choose a new partner, though?
Online searches result in overwhelming promotional messages and thousands of irrelevant reviews.
You probably agree that the most credible advice comes straight from the people you know and trust. People who have gone through the same experiences.
So, we envisioned the creation of a B2B network that provides relevant references based on social distance, similarity and past success.
Unlike LinkedIn which provides a great platform to individuals who want to grow their network, we aim to facilitate the relationship between businesses.

How is this portal different from the existing solutions on the market?
There are many wonderful portals out there that provide substantial value to B2B companies. For example, you would go to Crunchbase to find an investor, or Capterra to search for an appropriate software solution. However, none of these platforms are truly suitable for discovering a partner you trust. Thus, we decided to build Referial.
How do I sign up for a user profile?

Can I un-list a company from the platform?
Yes, at any stage you can opt to be removed from the portal. Send an email to email@example.com with your request.
How will potential partners/customers find my company?
Our methodology favors companies with verified past success, which happen to be related by a common partner or reference.
Interested parties can use the ‘Find a partner’ box to search for a specific organization or keyword. In addition, the results can be filtered with the selection of industry tags.
How is the profile score calculated?
The points awarded depend on the information you have entered in each of the categories of your profile. The higher the points you have, the higher the company is shown in the listing.
How to get the most out of Referial?
Be sure to fill out your profile with as much information is possible. It would also help to contact clients/ partners and ask them to verify your case studies and references.
What are your long-term plans for the portal?
Over time we plan to artificial intelligence into our algorithm, so that anyone would be able to reliably find any information with regards to the B2B world in a matter of just a few clicks.
Later on we intend to recreate the entire marketplace in VR so that suppliers can present their product or service in a unique and compelling way.
