EcoloBlue joins SABLE and Powerlinx to match South African Companies with Global Partners

The SABLE Accelerator Press Release:

South African entrepreneurs, enterprises and innovators now have a powerful new way to connect with customers, capital sources and partners globally using a big data analytics service that intelligently matches them with relevant and compatible growth opportunities from a database of more than 15 million qualified prospects.

The SABLE Accelerator, a global resource network of expat South African consultants, investors and domain experts based in Silicon Valley, has signed an agreement with New York-based Powerlinx to provide a massively scalable way for South African companies, research centers and institutions to quickly identify and engage with strategic growth opportunities domestically and globally. The goal of the agreement is to more rapidly commercialize innovation, attract foreign investment, and develop global markets.

By integrating the Powerlinx global business-to-business matchmaking platform into its www.sablenetwork.com web site, SABLE (South African Business Link to Experts) is applying disruptive innovation and “radical efficiency” to a business development and alliance building process that is typically complex, costly and time-intensive for businesses and new venture start-ups.

Powerlinx, which is led and backed by a world-class group of founders with an instinctive and intuitive understanding of the needs of the global business market, an experienced team of big data technologists, search specialists and information service experts, has its technology headquartered in Tel Aviv. The company is previewing its opportunity sourcing service in a meeting of SABLE Network members at the law firm of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati in Palo Alto, California today.

Initial pilot users of Powerlinx include a number of emerging growth companies from South Africa, including PHEMI, BusinessOptics, Delta Steam Systems, EcoloBlue, Cavendish Corporation (Kari’s Malva Pudding), DisruptiveVision, MPULL, TimeToReply, CapeRay, Questr, Cognician, Cognisses, Korwe Software, Virtual Mobile Tech, GoMetro, SoftCopy, wiGroup, XMPro and InnovUS.
