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?

Limited Resources

96% of all businesses in the UK have fewer than 10 employees.

  • 0 Employees
  • 1-9 (micro)
  • 10-24 (small)
  • 50-249 (med)
  • 249+ (large)

High Risk

SMEs invest time and money bidding for contracts they are not going to win.

Low Reward

Only 19% of public procurement spend currently goes to SMEs in the UK.
