About Globial

We are the world's most trusted network for buyer and supplier discovery. Our headquarters is in Sunnyvale, California in the United States.


Our mission is to make global trade easier by connecting trusted businesses around the world. Join Globial to source from suppliers easily and attract new customers.

What We Do

How can you trust a business that you've never worked with before? How can you trust a business thousands of miles away? We asked these same questions and came up with Globial, a network that helps your company discover credible buyers and suppliers. Globial works by revealing the "who works with who" network, meaning we show if a reputable company will has worked with many other companies. These companies act as References, helping to verify a company's credibility.

Imagine an overseas supplier you don't know anything about. Now imagine that 5 companies in your country, including 2 of your connections, has worked with that overseas supplier. Wouldn't you be better able to tell that it's a credible supplier? Globial helps reveal that network so you can find companies you can trust.

How We Do It

Globial is a business to business network that is helping businesses engage in global trade more easily and with greater trust. Some of the world's largest companies use Globial to trade easier. Our platform combines tools for networking, buying, selling, and company credibility.

We offer a business to business marketplace that makes sourcing and finding buyers easy. Companies can post Deals to attract new customers or Buyer Leads to get quotations without searching for suppliers. We match your Deal and Lead posts directly with interested buyers and sellers. Combined with our networking capabilities, Globial makes it easy to make new business contacts, source, and grow your business.
