The First Ever Vendor List Company Opens in the UK
At first glance, you may be wondering what a vendor list is and how it could ever be a profitable business. Well, we are in the year 2021, in the middle of a global pandemic and women everywhere are stepping out of their comfort zone and making big things happen from their brilliant ideas and imaginations.
One such woman is Nicky Bentley, the “womanpreneur” who is the CEO and founder of the UK’s first ever Vendor List Company called Crown Connective.
So, What’s a Vendor List Company?
Vendor List Companies are fairly new to the world of business, but they have proved to be very profitable for both themselves and their clients and they are here to change the game.
A Vendor List Company is also known as a Business Development Company. This type of company connects entrepreneurs with suppliers and wholesale vendors around the world for the purpose of them being able to purchase items they can retail to their respective customers and clients through their online stores.
Vendor List Companies save other businesses time and possibly money when they are seeking suppliers to fuel their business for growth. These companies are all in resource aids because many of them also help with business strategy, branding, marketing and so much more.
