Community Win: A Funny Collection of Well Known But Non-Existent Companies

Hello Wiki fans, and welcome to Community Win again!

TechNet Wiki is a place where we can combine our knowledge - today I would like to give a less technical example of this.

Last week one of my colleagues, János Berke showed me that redirects to We checked Northwind Traders, Contoso Inc., and several other well known companies as well.

And I just came across the List of Fictional Companies Used in Microsoft Material/Documentation page on TechNet Wiki. Don't forget to make a guess how many companies you will see, before you check the page - I think you will be surprised. Just leave a comment below with your score 🙂 

And of course, if you know another company which is missing from the list, feel free to add it - it's still a Wiki page.

Have fun with TechNet Wiki!

  1. Okay, I checked. I'm not going to spoil it by telling you how far off I was. I'll just leave a comment over there with how far off my guess was. =^)

    My guess would have been around 40% 🙂 I was very surprised 🙂

  3. Janos Berke says:

    I can't guess but have some favorites, like Contoso Frozen Yogurt Co. which is not listed 🙂

  4. says:

    So someone should add it then? 🙂

    That would be a good start of using Wiki for you 🙂
