Every week, I try to give myself an hour or two to surf the web and do research on companies and news that I might not otherwise come across in the regular contingent of sites and publications I peruse (don’t ask — it’s probably upwards of 150 now). While I could probably put this time to better concrete writing or billable use, I often find that through various in-the-moment paths I take from different research and web surfing expeditions, I discover ideas and companies I’d otherwise miss out on learning about before others and ultimately, sharing on these virtual pages first.
One such organization is Cortera, an upstart in the credit and supply risk world that I came across when attempting to look for new information sources like this in the supplier risk management area. Cortera represents perhaps the most interesting and revolutionary competitor to D&B I’ve yet seen in the credit reporting and supply risk content space. They’re small today, but potentially have a very strong offering on their hands, especially in the SMB supplier space.
