About

Aggregage is building the next-generation of business media, deploying web sites/newsletters that are each focused on a specific business segment topic, and each aggregating the most engaging online content.

The aggregated content on our topic-specific sites comes from a number of interesting and relevant sources:  blogs, white papers, peer recommendations, social networks, and discussion groups to name a few.

That content is auto-curated by our readers based on their social media activity, so that the best rises to the top.  Personalized newsletter versions of each content community deliver a customized version for each and every reader.
