BNP Paribas Launches Corporate Networking Platform
BNP Paribas is announcing the launch of AGORA, an online community co-built with its corporate clients. The platform – currently in trial phase with 50 clients – was co-developed by four BNP Paribas business lines: (1) Retail Banking in France, (2) Corporate & Institutional Banking, (3) Wealth Management and (4) BNP Paribas Fortis.
#Agora is a Greek word that has literal meaning of "gathering place" or "assembly". In #Portuguese, however, #Agora means "now", "maintenant". This is @BNPParibas . #Gathering their clients #Now to deliver even best financial services! #Bravo ! https://t.co/Qa5eT6prrT https://t.co/Qa5eT6prrT

AGORA was born from a shared conviction that expanding the group’s professional client network is a growth lever for the sustainable development of their business, enabling them to: (1) look for new clients, (2) identify distributors or new suppliers, (3) get in touch with startups, and (4) develop their business through partnerships and merger-acquisitions.
With a network of over 850,000 corporate, professional and startup clients, BNP Paribas has taken the initiative to create this community that will allow the clients in it to connect with each other on a global scale, in a safe and trustworthy environment.
