We are thrilled to announce that G4S, the world’s leading global, integrated security company who are "committed to promoting and supporting diverse suppliers" has joined Kaleida International.
Jon Willescroft, CPO, at G4S said:
"This partnership with Kaleida International will be key in helping us to access, connect and work with a wide range of diverse owned suppliers, creating greater breadth and better representation across our supply chain."
2022 has been a remarkable year for Kaleida.
We've evangelised about the benefits of working with Diverse Suppliers, found partners committed to spending more with marginalised communities, and continue to attract Suppliers who want to increase their access to revenue generating opportunities.
Jason Roberts, CEO, Kaleida International, said:
"We are excited to partner with G4S, and make revenue generating opportunities accessible to marginalised communities across the UK, and Europe. Diverse Suppliers are asking for more access to economic equity to help grow their businesses. Diversity programmes like this one launched by G4S will help Diverse Suppliers overcome the economic hurdles often experienced by historically underutilised founders"
Thank you all for your continued support, and all those in team G4S who made this possible.
Please join us in congratulating G4S and Kaleida.
"Finding Diverse Suppliers is time-consuming as the process today involves researching against multiple databases."
Founded in 2019, Kaleida International is a B2B marketplace for Tenders connecting Buyers to Suppliers, and Diverse Suppliers. With a focus on helping the Chief Procurement Office achieve its ESG goals, and alerting companies to new revenue opportunities, Kaleida's fully-inclusive platform helps Buyers find, identify and assess Diverse Suppliers they can invite to Tender.
In 2022 Kaleida will publish £750b in both Public and Private sector tenders for suppliers, and Diverse suppliers to apply to. By increasing access to commercial opportunity, we believe we can drive equality through providing access to economic parity.
