Online business matchmaker Bintro has added ontology databases Freebase and Geonames to its service. Bintro matches businesses with individuals seeking employment. Bintro has also introduced five new match categories: employment and services, charities and volunteering, partnerships and joint ventures, investment, and mentoring. These categories, according to internal research, cover 98% of user searches. Bintro will continue to make use of English language lexical database WordNet and plans to add two new ontological databases in the near future.
