The World Confederation of Businesses (WORLDCOB) was founded on September 9, 2004, in the city of Houston, Texas, in the United States of America, under the name of MPBM, Co. Authorization was requested for the use of the name World Confederation of Businesses as the DBA (trade name) of MPBM Co.
WORLDCOB has a governing body consisting of the chairman, vice chairman, and the board of directors, made up of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals of different nationalities, all with extensive experience in the field of business consultancy and advisory and all viewing the development of businesses as a driving force behind the economy and a guarantee of the sustained development of all countries.
The main offices were set up in Houston, with plans to open branches on every continent. In order to better provide services, an office was opened in Lima, Peru, to attend to our members, making it WORLDCOB’s second administrative office and representing us in Latin America.
The initial vision of WORLDCOB’s founders was to create an international business organization that would bring together and recognize those companies who were leaders in their fields, striving day in and day out to boost the growth of the economy in their countries and the world and making them models to be followed. That is why THE BIZZ international business award was created. It offers a wide range of benefits to aid in these companies’ development.
In 2005, the first awards ceremony was held in the city of Houston, bringing together winning businesspeople from different countries around the world. This first ceremony received such backing and support from the organization’s members that it was decided to hold events around the world, initially organizing ceremonies for South and Central America in 2006 before conquering Europe in 2007 and Africa in 2008, followed by the Middle East in 2009, when Dubai, United Arab Emirates, hosted this important business awards event, which was attended by over 200 successful businesspeople.
Currently, WORLDCOB’s primary mission is to promote business development worldwide, recognizing and boosting the growth of leading businesses and businesspeople in every country through the special tools and services that it offers its members. It has over 3,000 members, representing more than 100 countries.
In an effort to offer greater benefits and to continue promoting the business development of our organization’s members, WORLDCOB provides a series of services to businesspeople worldwide through the following brands:
