What types of business do you know besides B2B and B2C?

I've been researching different types of business for a while, and summarized this research in a Pulse article:
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/cant-decide-between-b2c-b2b-heres-4-more-choices-dimitry-rotstein?trk=mp-author-card

In addition to B2B and B2C, I'm describing B2P, B2F, B2E, and B2A, all accompanied by business models, expected revenues, marketing channels (and more), most appropriate for each type.
Can you think of any other type, or business models / marketing channels for the given types? Any comment is appreciated.

P.S. The article is illustrated (with my own drawings) for your entertainment :-)

I can think of one. BTNP. Business to Non-Profit. I have worked with Non-Profits and their concerns, needs and decision processes are very different from for-profit and governmental groups.

B2B2C, where we provide our product to others to embed in their system for consumers to use. The challenge is that the marketing messages for the business are different from the marketing messages to the consumer.

That's a good point. In your experience, how much would a non-profit be willing to pay for a software product/service that they really need, as compared to a commercial entity? Do they require a different approach in terms of marketing channels or business models?

What I found was that non-profits are typically focused on fund or grant accounting. That may seem like a minor accounting difference, but the reality is that the grants are typically coming from external groups that want to see a human benefit to their donations. For example, "This system will allow for better distribution of donated medication to sick people in Africa and for every dollar spent, $50 in health benefits will be derived for targeted sick people"
Also, non-profits frequently start out from a position where they deserve a discount from your list prices since they are providing a public good. This requires a more delicate negotiation strategy in many cases.

Usually, yes.
The procurement process is quite different and the pricing is often lower.
