“EnterpriseJungle grows one’s network, making it easier to access the right people in the right way and at the right time to help achieve their goals,” James Sinclair, co-founder of EnterpriseJungle, told New York Smash. “Engaging with those who fit perfectly into a person’s business social graph will help to build effective and meaningful relationships that drive more efficient outcomes.”
“We can find the people missing in your network that you should know, and we can find the people that you should know but don’t,” Sinclair explained. “We provide this very [specific] value on top of your existing ESN (enterprise social network) provider — Jive, Yammer, SuccessFactors — whatever it is, we’re able to jump in there…and sit on top of any data set, and provide recommendations.”

Most social networks are designed to connect people with their peers or colleagues, but EnterpriseJungle takes it one step further: This social discovery platform finds connections between users they didn’t know they could make. EnterpriseJungle, which is integrated with LinkedIn, leverages a person’s LinkedIn contacts to create an individualized network of colleagues. The best way to introduce new people is through mutual friends, says James Sinclair, EnterpriseJungle’s co-founder. And EnterpriseJungle steps in and assumes the role of a friend who is ready to make the proper introductions.
Sibling duo Emma and James Sinclair solve one of the biggest challenges for large companies with a new approach to the enterprise social network.

Named Enterprise Jungle, the website claims to help companies maximise the skillsets of their workforce by identifying employees who would work well together by pulling data from their LinkedIn public profiles, such as common interests or projects they have worked on.
Enterprise Jungle is still in its alpha phase but is being used by a handful of large corporate customers. In a nutshell, it helps companies derive optimal value from their workforce by connecting employees who would work well together. It also helps employees succeed by connecting them to people in their network who have worked on similar projects in the past and might be open to collaborating.
