Manta.com has won the 2007 TopCAT award as Outstanding Product From a Company With Less Than 50 People.
This is the second straight year Manta.com and its parent, ECNext Inc., have won a TopCAT Award. Presented by Tech Columbus, the awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of Central Ohio technology companies. TopCAT candidates must be nominated by an outside party and undergo a rigorous evaluation process. Tech Columbus calls the TopCat award the most prestigious tech honor in Ohio.

Our members can find company and contact information, add it to a list, make notes, set alerts on companies and share lists, all from one website. And it's free!"
Manta.com attracts more than 4 million visitors each month. Those users include sales professionals, executives, analysts, and recruiters. "Anyone who needs to know information about companies, large and small, domestic and international, private and public, can find the information they are looking for at Manta.com."
