E.Factor

E.Factor focuses on helping entrepreneurs with advice,assistance and funding. While the site offers mentoring, the chance to write ablog and offerings similar to other business social networks, it sets itselfapart by providing a way for entrepreneurs to buy health insurance. It notesthat the threat of losing health insurance dissuades many would-beentrepreneurs from jumping into a startup. Basic membership is free (includingability to buy health insurance), with a la carte prices for individual itemssuch as events, mentoring, etc. Platinum membership for all the services is$1,920 annually. Note: The sign-up process requires a phone number.

It may seem that Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter get all the media love when it comes to social networking, but there is a wealth of sites out there to link business people with other like-minded folks. Most appeal to a niche of users, so you’re sure to find one for your particular need. As with all social-networking sites, the value comes from who else participates on the site and how actively. Most of the sites are free, but many charge for premium services (and many make it annoyingly difficult to find out the cost until you sign up!).
