Bizzingo is developing a B2B social media network created specifically for businesses that will allow them to search and find each other easily, while encouraging collaboration through a validated and trusted network.

"We are thrilled to be working with Sun Enterprises to tailor the Bizzingo platform capabilities for easy adoption by Chinese companies in their global business development efforts, as expressed by the Livebook roadmap," said Douglas Toth, Bizzingo's chairman and chief executive officer. "One of Bizzingo's key goals is to level the playing field for small and midsize businesses. This JV enables us to extend our value proposition globally, by providing access to Chinese manufacturing and sourcing through a highly effective and targeted collaboration platform."
"We look forward to partnering with Bizzingo on the creation of the 'Livebook' application, especially for Chinese companies. Because it will be designed for business, we believe it holds great potential for companies to use social media to expand their opportunities," said Alex Cherepakhov, CEO of Sun Enterprise Group, Ltd.
