About CompanyEgg

Business Search Engine

CompanyEgg is the largest site on the internet dedicated to helping businesses market themselves in an increasingly digital-first world. CompanyEgg is the world's only business search engine without ads. We are on a mission to publish the entire world's business data on an extremely fast platform that respects both consumers and business owners. We believe there is a better way to search and find businesses.

We are capitalizing on profound changes in technology, demographics, and privacy-oriented user experiences that are collectively driving a secular shift toward empowering entrepreneurs and business owners to take control of their reputations online. Additionally, we are providing the platform for SMEs to build their own websites and e-commerce channels from a single dashboard emphasizing website-first marketing. This enables SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) to create enterprise-level asset value in their brands and businesses.

We create small business-focused marketing solutions that are responsive to the preferences of today’s sophisticated web surfers and business owners alike.

CompanyEgg: Just Business

Your Business, without Ads

Unlike the other search engines and business directories on the internet, we do not put ads on your business information. We do not accept payment from other businesses to target your customers.

Get Customers without Losing Them

Most search engines are "pay to play." They promise customers in exchange for advertising dollars, but the second you stop paying, they promote other businesses on your company listing. We do not hold businesses hostage.

A Place for All 120M Global SMEs

With more than 120M SMEs globally, we are expanding our datasets to include SME data for every business in the world in one place, on one domain: CompanyEgg.com. We're building the first true global search engine.

Website First Marketing

We are helping business owners create asset value in their brands by encouraging them to focus on building incredible experiences on their websites with the NoCodeWebsite.com Website Builder, the first website builder focusing on websites built for businesses.

Digital Transformation

We are helping to build sustainable business models for SMEs in a digital-first world. More than half of all searches on the major search engines have local intent, meaning consumers are looking for businesses with product and services near them. For many SMEs, a listing on CompanyEgg is their first website. CompanyEgg is launching a No-Code Website Builder in 2020 that will help business owners build business-first websites in a digital-first world.

SMEs are the Backbone of the World Economy

In nearly every country in the world, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) account for more than half of the GDP and in many countries, SMEs account for more than 90% of GDP. SMEs are the backbone of modern economies.

In 2020 and beyond, SMEs will have to strategically shift to meet the demands of their customers who are increasingly turning to the internet to research and conduct business. In many countries, a business does not exist without an online presence. Consumers are using the internet and internet searches to make decisions about a business before they make any calls or visits to the business. With advertising budgets shrinking and being reconsidered, businesses are still expected to have a strong online presence.

CompanyEgg Global Expansion

We are the only business search engine and SME listing syndication platform purposely built to publish data for every business in the world — all 120 million+ businesses worldwide. We are launching business search for nearly 20 countries in the next two years.
