Belgian financial services group Fortis has launched a MySpace-style social network for European entrepreneurs.
The Join2Grow platform is being positioned as an online destination where entrepreneurs can meet, communicate freely with fellow business people and exchange useful information. The site is pitched at all categories of business managers, from start-ups to established concerns.
The profile of each active Web site member shows the business sector they come from, their hobbies and their business objectives.
The site also features a 'magazine' section with audio and video podcasts, where European business owners talk about their professional experience and the challenges they have faced.
In a statement, Fortis says it is "strongly backing this new tool, which will give European business people the opportunity to be part of a strong, continent-wide community of modern and active entrepreneurs who want to take their business life to another level".
