What is PIR?

Procurement teams have the need for objective support in identifying and assessing emerging solutions to cut through the noise and stay ahead of the curve amid a rapidly changing competitive landscape.


PIR brings together a cohort of procurement professionals looking for innovative solutions and provides a platform to make assessments on who will be the partners of the future from a curated list of Innovators and start-ups.


Interested in pitching your solution at our next Roundtable? It's free to apply! 

Member Commitment


Executive level engagement in our innovation process and participation in our Spring & Fall Roundtables


Commitment to explore at least one new solution each year through our matchmaking process


Willingness to share results and learn from recent implementations with the group

How it Works


The first step in the process is to carefully vet and curate a list of innovative solutions that meet our PIR Member priorities. To do this, we solicit “Innovator” submissions twice per year in anticipation of our Fall and Spring Roundtables. Incoming innovators are invited to share key details related to their solution, stage and ability to deploy to an PIR Member. 


PIR Members are organized into specific Cohorts. These carefully crafted peer groups meet twice per year (Spring and Fall) to collaborate and hear from voted-in innovators in a “shark-tank” style presentation format. 


Matchmaking is a key part of the PIR process. A “match” is a member-initiated relationship with an innovator. It is an invitation to continue the conversation about how a specific solution could fit with a specific employer. Following a match request, the PIR team will send a warm introduction connecting leadership on both sides. 


PIR Members share learnings, reference checks, and questions to accelerate high value emerging solutions.


To submit for PIR consideration, please complete the submission form by clicking the button below. There is no cost to submit. Following submission, our curation team will carefully review and score each solution.
