1. DIRECTORS of successful growth companies


In Directorzone speak, you are a GRID* company and we'd like to offer you a business development platform and marketplace. You have a great company, but are you satisfied with:

  • your market profile? 
  • your access to great suppliers / partners / advice / investors / customers?
  • the time it takes to find solutions to strategic challenges?
  • the speed of access to the market you want to reach?


2. MARKET WATCHERS - investors, advisers and commentators


In Directorzone speak, you are the Accelerators** and we'd like to offer you a knowledge marketing platform: publishing your insight and good advice will bring business to you. You have valuable experience and expertise that can help companies to succeed, but are you satisfied that:

  • your expertise and knowledge are well-known in this exciting marketplace?
  • your ideas and advice are easily accessible online?

EDITORIAL LINE: we are looking for purposeful, useful content that creates market intelligence,  understanding and opportunities. We'd like to:

  • focus on business issues and expertise at companies and business accelerators
