Markaaz provides every SMB with access, equality and empowerment through affordable resources and tools to run and grow their businesses.
The Markaaz Directory is an unrivaled resource of pre-verified SMBs that empowers business owners to save critical time and money to identify, connect, monitor and transact with verified suppliers and partners. The 100 million SMBs included in the Markaaz Directory, which will grow to more than 300 million this year, are verified with the most robust global standards, including Know Your Customer, Know Your Business, AML checks, identity verification, all permissioned data and more. Markaaz is the first solution to offer affordable, unlimited access to this information, providing unique insights that enable better business decisions regarding suppliers, buyers and partners.
The all-in-one Markaaz Dashboard is the control center through which all this is accessed.
