We’ve built the small business genome.

Nope, we don’t study the science of human genes. (And don’t worry, you aren’t the first person to ask this question!) We emerged from research out of Georgetown University that studied small business owners to understand how they think, how they operate and how to help them improve their businesses. We utilize this knowledge to build first-of-its-kind software to help small business owners.

Today with our software product Vendor IQ, we are helping restaurant owners and their vendors, suppliers and partners improve the way they buy and sell. Now owners and their vendor partners use the very latest in data analysis, automation and technology to create a more advanced food industry marketplace. Yup, it’s pretty cool.

Meet Vendor IQ. We connect restaurant owners with vendors, suppliers and partners they’ll love.

Our flagship product Vendor IQ uses reviews, recommendations and insights from thousands of interviews with restaurant owners and operators to find out who are the best vendors, suppliers and partners across quality, service and price. We turn this information into a sophisticated matching algorithm to create the perfect match between a restaurant and their food, beverage, disposables, insurance, merchant processing or other suppliers.

Restaurants save time, get improved quality, lower costs and stop worrying about fluctuating market prices.

Vendors find new great restaurant customers looking for top rated vendors focused on serving independent restaurants.

We help both vendors and restaurants build long term partnerships together — with the power of intelligence and data.

Great colleagues. Seasoned executive team. Funding from World Class VCs.

And the opportunity to help millions of small business owners and their partners forever. What else, you ask?
