Global Procurement Network

Procurement is smarter, more ambitious, more global and more mobile than ever before. But procurement and supply chain professionals are a widespread and disconnected community – they haven’t had anywhere to collaborate online. Until now, we’ve built Procurious – the online business network for a new generation of procurement and supply chain professionals.

As part of our offering we are developing and sharing Procurement Training Programs that will empower future procurement and supply chain leaders, we aim to change the face of the profession from the inside out.
