State:  New York
Center: Onondaga SBDC
Client:  Brazzlebox

Story:  Brazzlebox, the exclusive social network for small and home based business, has announced it is launching nationally on September 18, 2014.  Small, at home, Veteran owned and start-up businesses will be able to go to and sign up FREE. They can quickly develop their profile page and immediately start connecting with businesses in their community or industry.

Brazzlebox is the brainchild of serial entrepreneur Glen Zinszer. Brazzlebox will be working to fill the current B2B and B2Community social networking void. “The opportunity to create an exclusive network and resource for small and home based business owners is massive,” said Zinszer. Small, at home, Veteran and start-up businesses need a champion and a channel. Brazzlebox is coming to your town, business, idea and community. Glen has worked with the SBDC with many of his start-up businesses, including Brazzlebox, and found the information, direction and education incredibly beneficial.  “The level of support received was crucial in the success of all of my businesses: said Zinszer.  

Glen developed Brazzlebox out of the frustrations and difficulties of being a small business owner.  The features are designed to help small businesses network quickly in their community or industry.  Small business members can also take advantage of incredible discounts and deals from our national partners on products and services they need every day to run their business. Our start up and business resource center provides community specific content and direction to help members get started with a new small business or help grow their current one.  Direct Sales Representatives can also join to network, increase their awareness of their product in their community and find resources to help them become more successful. 

Charlene Barkley, the Director of Advertising and Promotions, states “When you join Brazzlebox, you become a member of a unique community of small and home business owners. Brazzlebox was created for small business by small business.”

Other social networks like Facebook and Google+ allow you to share information between family and friends, LinkedIn has networks designed for professionals and Twitter discusses interests.  Now there is Brazzlebox, a full featured social network made exclusively for small and home-based business owners.

Welcome, you’re among family.
