This paper describes a novel approach for addressing the issue of business-matching and recommending in business-to-business e-marketplaces. The presented matching system makes use of Collective Intelligence (CI) means for identifying and recommending business opportunities that are best correlated with the user's need. The objective from this approach is to shift the focus from search-oriented matching, toward assistance-providing business matching systems for the next-generation e-marketplaces. At first, the content of business proposals which are submitted to the e-marketplace, along with their companies' profiles are parsed and indexed. The indexed data may be collected from electronically submitted entries, as well as from scanned and handwritten documents.
