Describe your startup - name, URL, what you do, etc.

My startup came to me while working for a small business, I was well immersed in the local chamber of commerce and saw the huge need for a way to connect consumers with local businesses. I realized that while it was important for many consumers to buy products they need locally, they generally were unable to find a place to buy it locally and the convenience of purchasing at a big box store drove most consumers to those spots. My startup is designed to connect a consumer to a merchant using keyword searches. For example, if you were looking to purchase toaster oven, you could type in toaster oven and would be provided a list of local merchants that sell that product.

Introduction

I recently left my job as a manager at a small Managed Services Provider, providing services to both PC and Mac clientele. I am in the beginning stages of my starup idea, and am beginning to provide IT consulting in the SMB market.
