Find the Hottest Procurement Startups
DPW is the biggest stage for procurement startups in the world. We do the legwork for you by reviewing hundreds of emerging solutions from across the procurement spectrum, then distilling them into DEMO, our dedicated pitch session. This process makes it easy for you to uncover the unique strengths of emerging startups, gain insight into procurement technology trends, and learn where digital procurement is heading in 2020 and beyond.

Tap Into Procurement’s Huge Market Potential
Procurement has reached the stage where the function is primed for a wildfire of technology, and service innovation, and investment. This is evident by the steady stream of investments in procurement-related startups in recent years. While total investment in procurement startups is relatively low in comparison with other sectors such as automotive or logistics, procurement startups have raised US $2.9 billion from investors in the last decade. 75% of investments in procurement has been secured just since 2012, which illustrates the current strength of this area.

"The business case for digital procurement has become increasingly clear and the amount of capital pouring into the development of digital procurement tools indicates the function’s huge market potential for investors."

- José Vidal de Sousa, VP, GTO PARTNERS
