80% of Net-company shutdowns are b-to-b

Published on .

New York--Eighty percent of Internet companies that closed their doors in the third quarter were b-to-b, and 69% of all 2002 failures were b-to-b companies, according to a study by Webmergers.com. In 2001, 57% of Web companies that folded were b-to-b. One theory for the increase in b-to-b, Webmergers.com's Tim Miller said, is "consumer companies started to migrate to a b-to-b model" when the Internet downturn began, but it was "too little, too late."
