Docstoc Sharpens Focus On Small Businesses

Santa Monica-based Docstoc, the online document sharing site headed by Jason Nazar, said Tuesday that it is rebranding the service to focus on small business owners and operators. The firm--which started as a place to share professional documents--said it is looking to become the "premier" online resource for small business owners. Nazar said that the firm is now profitable, and has been doubling its revenue, year-over-year, for the past three years. Among new efforts by the company around small business are original articles and videos being produced in-house by the company; small business focused segments; expert curated category pages and articles; as well as better document matching and search. The firm now has 35 employees in Santa Monica.
