What do we do?

We're fixing the RFP process. Bonfire is a collaborative decision-making tool that helps purchasing teams make faster, better spending choices.

$1T+ is spent EVERY SINGLE YEAR via RFPs and similar processes. And purchasers have to choose between terrible 'eProcurement' software (think: 1990's UI and $100k+ price tag) and manual paper/Excel workflows.

The winner of this market will have a network of buyers and sellers unrivalled in the history of commerce - a kind of 'B2B singularity'.

We intend to be that winner. Come help us win!
