Market place
Explanation:
Also known as a 'place de marché'

Refers to a forum for trading (a bit like the work section of ProZ, really), where companies can put out calls for tender or look for suppliers and suppliers can advertise their services or reply to calls for tender...

Similar structures also exist (on and off-line) for start-ups looking for investors (venture capital...), as well as specialised forums within specific market sectors...

here are a few examples:

"Imprimerie-OnLine est un réseau de prestataires des Arts Graphiques, signataires d'une charte qualité, qui ont décidé de se promouvoir en proposant aux donneurs d'ordres des outils et des solutions de sourcing novateurs.

Utiliser les services d’Imprimerie-OnLine, c’est bénéficier dès à présent des avantages de l'e-commerce, que l’on soit acheteur ou prestataire.

Utiliser Imprimerie-OnLine, c’est rencontrer en direct des prestataires de référence, par le biais d'une place d'affaires opérationnelle depuis 1998, efficace, neutre et transparente, refusant toute commission ou honoraire. "

first business exchange


Explanation:
I'm not sure about what you mean by "home", but I assume "place" is being used as in "place boursière" (stck exchange) or "la place de Paris" (the Paris Stock Exchange).

disagree  Gillian Hargreaves: Probably not so specific. (BTW, "when it's at home" is a humorous idiomatic expression used mostly in conversation.
