Hi, i'm nicolas bohorquez cofounder of Solocontrata.me, the service that provides information about the business opportunities that companies have to sell goods and services to the government and large companies..
Let me show you what we do on Solocontrata.me, suppose you have a company that sells bulbs or provides lighting services, you can test in Solocontrata.me if there is a bid appropiate for your company, you use our free search with the keyword "lighting" and we show you 50 contracts in which you can participate.
The first result is a 450k contract in Bogotá Colombia which is great for a big company or even for an international one who wants to take advantage of the Free Trade Agreements, but, suppose you are not in the capital of the country, you are in a small town near to the caribbean and your company is a small business. you can use the filters for budget and location
to find a contract for 500 usd, which seems to be appropiate not for a company like siemens but for a small family business.
When you subscribe your company to Solocontrata.me you receive via email all those opportunities, we scrappe the web every hour and analize every bid to let you know as fast as we can that you have a business opportunity that matches your criteria.
We are doing Solocontratame because we are sure that small business and also large companies are missing the chance to sell to the government mainly because of lack of information, and the government is loosing the chance to make great deals mainly because of lack of competition. Actually the B2G market is unexplored, OECD estimates that only 25 percent of companies participates in a market which represents 13 percent of the global GDP.
So what we have done yet? Well, we have processed almost 800k opportunities in three countries and 9 private companies, we have more than 500 users, with almost 50 paying a small monthly fee and we are talking with them in order to know how can we help them to get into this market. Our clients includes small business but also key competitors like siemens, addeco, nec or even mercadolibre.
We are working to include more datasources and develop new services based on our current users feedback. Those services will increase the differentiation of Solocontrata.me versus our competitors.
Finally i would like to introduce our team, Henry Canastero is our CTO and cofounder he has experience as lead developer and CTO in other global startups. Also we count we two more developers and a customer care officer.
Remember, with Solocontrata.me you can sign more contracts and improve the world. Thank you.
