About us

Market Dojo

We are a pioneering software-as-a-service (SaaS) company that offers professional, intelligent and easy-to-use online negotiation software at commoditised pricing. In our brief existence so far, we have marked a number of fantastic milestones. Here are some of the highlights:

  • founding the company in August 2010.
  • releasing version 1.0 of the software in late November 2010.
  • first e-auction, a great success with 25% saving.
  • Adding in RFQ capability, April 2011.
  • first e-auction that required zero training of either the buyer or the suppliers – it was worth over £1m as well!
  • first customer self-sign up and go.
  • welcoming our first Fortune 500 customer.
  • being awarded a TSB grant.
  • signing our first site licence agreement.

In fact, there are just too many to list. In terms of who we are, there are three of us who lead the company: Alun Rafique, Nick Drewe and Nic Martin. All three of us are University of Bristol graduates, two of us in Engineering and one in Physics. Our previous employers include Rolls Royce, PwC, Ansys and Attensity, giving us nearly 30 years of Management, IT and Procurement consultancy experience. Having said that, this is the first time we have ever set up our own company! Please find a little introduction to us all below.

Procurement Summit 2015 – a gold medal conference

Procurement Summit 2015 – a gold medal conference

Having made the three hour trip to (not so sunny) Manchester the night before, we awoke from our hotel and made our way to the Procurement Summit conference which was held at the Midland Hotel. The hotel at which we stayed paled in comparison to the grandeur of The Midland Hotel, which was probably the most exquisite hotel I have personally ever had the pleasure of visiting.

We arrived to set up our stand at 8am and were fortunate enough to be situated next to the entrance (and en route to the bacon rolls!), giving us the perfect opportunity to meet and greet all who attended.

The delegates were scheduled to arrive at 9am, however many arrived early, keen to get a good spot for the opening keynote speech by the Olympian Mark Foster, who bore a striking resemblance to our incredibly handsome eSourcing hero!

There were many interesting seminars throughout the day including the one from our very own Co-Founders Nicholas Martin and Nick Drewe on how to maximise the results of an eAuction. The talk went down very well with many people visiting the stand afterwards to ask further questions. One delegate kindly said it was the best seminar they had attended all day! The talk was based around our whitepaper which you can download for free here by registering on the platform.

At the end of the day we ran our prize draw for a month’s free licence of our eSourcing software. The lucky winner was Simon Perkins from the Birmingham NHS trust who will hopefully be able to use our tool to generate some fantastic savings.

Thank you to the team for putting a wonderful event together and to everyone that visited the stand. It was great to see some familiar faces and to also show our easy to use, on demand solution to lots of new ones.

If you didn’t get a chance to attend the conference feel free to visit our website and sign up for free to learn more about what we do and find out how we could help you.
