This is SGT Peterson, his bio can be seen here SGT Peterson’s Bio, or check out his About.me page. He started America’s Black Book because he and a bunch of his entrepreneur friends get sick of reviews on yelp, google, etc that had nothing to do with their actual business started to creep up, and their was many people in his industry claiming to be #1 but could not back it up with any real reason for being number except for having a magazine editor liking them. Usually the reviews that had no marrot came from competitors, or people that had never even set foot in, or had contact with business. SGT Peterson finally had enough, and after a year and a half of brainstorming and talking to the best tech professionals in Minneapolis he found that he needed to go to the source of tech people to get the connections, and money to start the first big tech start up in history originating from Minneapolis. America’s Black Book is about the best inspiring the other top people in their industry to be the best, and telling the consumer who the undisputed #1-10 is in their city, region, state, US, and someday the world. Through SGT Peterson’s travels all over the world he found one thing consistant. American products, goods, services and celebrities are king! So because of his love for his country and the quality that America delivers he named the company America’s Black Book. Also because back in the day when you wanted to know who really was the best in your area, you would call your friend and they would pull out their black book and tell you who the best was. The whole thing was so very simple to him, it just made sense.
