About Bonfire

We’re harnessing the power of human connection and industry insights to enable the absolute best bid and RFP decisions.

Bonfire’s vision is to reinvent procurement to better our world. Smarter spending in the public sector means more resources and better services for taxpayers, and that’s something we can get behind.

Our Story

Bonfire was founded in 2012 after co-founders Corry Flatt and Alex Millar witnessed the time, energy, and frustration that went into thousands of bids and RFPs. When they saw that no one was proposing a better way to do it, they became inspired to digitize the procurement workflow themselves.

Bonfire today

Although Bonfire originally launched to make bid and RFP evaluation more efficient, compliant, and user-friendly, today it does so much more. Bonfire empowers procurement teams to build better relationships with features purpose-built to foster stakeholder engagement and teamwork.

On top of that, Bonfire is the only strategic sourcing software that allows clients to leverage industry insights, benchmarks, and data analysis to make proactive and informed decisions. In other words, Bonfire does more than bring procurement online—it elevates procurement teams from administrators to strategic partners.
