About us

Kountable is a global trade and technology platform

We deliver trust, transparency and auditability with data driven insights and real-time information from transactions where small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) work with enterprise level suppliers and buyers. We facilitate business between qualified but underserved SMEs in the US and Africa and global multinational suppliers in order to efficiently complete large scale projects for governments, foundations, NGOs and corporates.

Our Technology

Kountable has created and will evolve a data and processing platform representing a secure system of record for our global trades. In the platform we have emphasized the security and integrity of data as well as audit transparency. The platform is also constructed from the ground up to support flexible business practices, governance and risk constraints to include complete isolation of third-party data. The platform also emphasizes workflow integration with our partners via our secure, managed API.

The Opportunity

Kountable is the first company to unlock a green field opportunity to securely bring trillions of dollars of newly vetted and validated, measured, fully auditable SME-executed business to the ERPs of enterprise-level buyers and sellers. The data we generate can be used to improve projections, create pricing efficiencies, effectively measure demand, and provide auditable, real-time trackable execution strategies that meet ESG, SDG, DBE and impact goals for large scale projects.

Our guiding principles

Kountable's mission, vision and purpose drive us to think differently about how we create value for everyone on our platform. Here are some of the core principles that shape our approach.

Good actors earn greater access

We believe in working with those who act in ways that help us succeed together.

Do what you do best and free up others to do what they do best

We start by recognizing strengths and their potential to contribute to something much bigger and build to allow this to happen.

Small businesses are not small business.

There is immeasurable value, economic and otherwise, in integrating the world’s SMEs into the global economy in ways that allow their impact to be seen at scale.
