Between the Lines: Category Listings

Early in the dotcom revolution Princeton got lots of

press for being among the "most wired" areas in the nation,

and the statistics from the 2001 edition of the U.S. 1 Business

Directory

bear this out. This year, nearly half of the 5,472 companies in the

"business to business" directory have provided either an

E-mail

address or a home page. In fact, home pages have nearly doubled in

two years. In 1999, businesses listed 1,164. This year, the business

to business directory lists 2,027 URL addresses.

The fastest growing new category is — you could have guessed it

— Electronic Commerce. New last year, this category now bulges

with 25 companies, everything from software-based firms that deal

with electronic payments (such as Paytrust, Princeton e-Com, Trintech,

and Onehealthbank), to online retailers (such as Justballs! and

Trainfans),

to healthcare companies that are webcentric (such as HealthAtoZ.com

and the Iphysician.net), to innovative ways of using the Internet

(such as GeePS and DotPhoto).

A close look at the Electronic Commerce category shows that several

of these companies were started by alumni of LogicWorks, which made

the top of the "fast growing" lists, but stumbled and was

sold to Platinum Technologies. A bunch of equity-hungry would-be

entrepreneurs

went off on their own. Flint Lane and Ed McLaughlin started Paytrust,

the pioneering online bill presenting and paying service headquartered

at Quakerbridge Executive Center. Dean Boyer founded

onehealthbank.com,

the 50-person firm at Windsor Corporate Park that is teaming with

credit card and insurance companies to efficiently report and process

medical bills.

Another person who profited from one start-up and is growing another

one is Steven Haase, who sold his online learning company to invest

in Trainfans.com, selling train videos. Princeton’s Glenn Paul

(founder

of Clancy Paul), has launched Dotphoto.com, an Internet

photo-processing

site that offers voice captions.

Another growth spurt can be found in the specialty R&D area, which

went from 69 to 111, an increase of more than one-third. The biggest

jumps were in chemical R&D (10 to 16), medical products (6 to 11),

electronic

R&D (29 to 41), and biotech (34 to 43 companies).

Other categories on the upswing over the two-year period are software

services (36 to 53 companies), engineering (77 to 91), hotels (27

to 32), and healthcare/technical consultants (30 to 47). Child care

centers grew from 62 to 72. Another big category since 1999 has been

pharmaceutical service companies (42 to 55), with six brand-new

companies

and assorted move-ins.

On the decline, also over a two-year period, were travel agencies

(45 to 40), printing businesses (82 to 76), outplacement firms (5

to 2), financial information companies (13 to 9), computer leasing

firms (7 to 4), value added computer resellers (21 to 14), and

marketers

and direct marketers (70 to 61 companies).
