I'm sure you could pay for commercial blog software or blog hosting instead, if 
you preferred to do that.  Or perhaps there are some other open-source blog 
suites which are more suited to your multiuser requirements than Wordpress.

(Multiple user homepages, one blog with multiple users per company, works fine 
for me, although I have tried making a copy or two and it would take about 3 MB 
per extra user if you wanted to do it the "heavyweight" way.)
