Q: I noticed links to Websites for companies that made the BE 100S, but were not included this year. I am interested in learning more about many of the companies. Can you help me?

A: We most certainly can help you. Many of our readers see value in contacting our BE 100S companies, therefore our marketing department makes their contact information, including Web addresses, available on a disk. At the risk of sounding like a commercial, I must say it is invaluable.
The database–called the Toplist–can be sorted by industry, company name, title, or even zip code. It is designed to help with research, direct marketing, job searches, and sales prospecting. You can design mail merges and print labels, too. In addition to the BE 100S, the database also includes BLACK ENTERPRISE’s exclusive listing of black-owned franchises and our roster of nationally recognized black organizations.
This Toplist software program is updated yearly and costs $99. You can place your order on the BE 100S home page at blackenterprise.com, or call 212-886-6764.
