Stotles and Seedcamp

Part of the School’s prestigious incubator programmeStotles – a company that uses data to make public-sector procurement more accessible, has just been welcomed to the Seedcamp nation.

Seedcamp is a European seed fund company that invests in world-class companies attacking large, global markets and solving real problems using technology.

Taj Kamranpour, MBA2019 and COO of Stotles said: “As a founder who previously bid for public work, I felt the desperation of flying almost blind; we had no way to compete with others that already had ingrained relationships. I knew suppliers needed help.”

Seecamp Venture Partner, Stephen Allott, commented: “Stotles is the most significant sales enablement technology for public sector suppliers since the G-Cloud. The team and their vision are first class and the potential for this across both the UK and Europe as a whole is huge.”
