CEO of Purchasing Platform. Dave Bowen is what Scott likes to call a “refounder”. Dave was at the end of an earn out period from the acquisition of his previous business when he got approached by the Purchasting Platform team for help.
Pretty quickly they mapped out the mistakes that were made and realized they could turn it around with some due diligence and the promising existing tech.
Dave talks with Scott on the show about how their marketplace of vendors makes it easy for clients to get what they need for their communities and save money at the same time. In addition to procurement, their platform supports other operational and maintenance needs as well as a tool for tracking and controlling team members’ spend habits.
Scott and Dave also firm up refounder as someone who doesn’t found companies, but rather finds existing companies and gives them a reboot.
