Turning open data into useful data

Tussell is an online data service that enables businesses and intermediaries to discover trends and commercial opportunities in UK public procurement - a marketplace worth £223 billion in 2017. That's equivalent to about 10% of UK GDP. 

Tussell was founded in March 2015 to fill the gap for comprehensive analysis of the wider public sector supply chain. We aggregate officially published procurement notices from disparate sources into a powerful contract database. Use cases include tender alerting, market analysis, buyer or supplier intelligence and B2B prospecting.

By turning open data into useful data, we help to make the UK government even more transparent and efficient. And we promote competition by empowering small firms with market intelligence that was previously only accessible to big companies.

Tussell is a founder-led digital start-up based in London's Camden Town. Success for us is building a growth business that helps to make the UK the easiest place in the world for companies to do business with the public sector openly.
