Alun Rafique, Co-Founder of Market Dojo, started the business alongside Nick Drewe and Nic Martin. The team saw an opportunity in the procurement world to help buyers with negotiating (via reverse auctions), by creating an easy to use, on-demand platform. The founders of Market Dojo have backgrounds covering purchasing and software development as well as sales and marketing. This has been obtained through experience with consultancies, blue chip organisations and many varied software industries. The balance in these core skills has helped develop solutions for procurement teams to deliver real value while mitigating risk. It has also helped Market Dojo create a friendly environment focused on customer success and a business which has grown strongly year on year.
