Doing business in public procurement isn’t fun. Changing the way it works is.
We're developing online tools to help SMEs win more government tenders in the UK.
Hey! It’s not a level playing field! We want SMEs to get their fair share.
The UK government spends over £280 billion a year on buying goods and services from external suppliers. Why do large corporations that represent < 5% of UK businesses get more than 80% of the public procurement pie?
96% of all businesses in the UK have fewer than 10 employees.

SMEs invest time and money bidding for contracts they are not going to win.
Only 19% of public procurement spend currently goes to SMEs in the UK.
The TenderHood is a supplier-focused community that can position you on a level Playing Field.
