Raj Sharma is a social entrepreneur focused on creating “open government markets” for $10 trillion in global public procurement spending
Raj founded Public Spend Forum and is now working to democratize market data and make it freely available through an open market platform GovShop. By making market data more accessible, Raj’s goal is to reduce the information asymmetries that exist in government transactions, thereby creating more market transparency that leads to better buyer/supplier matches.
Raj also founded Censeo Consulting Group, a firm recognized nationally for its focus on using management as a tool for delivering public and social outcomes.
Raj learned that nations all over the world shared the same problems with public procurement. Which led to him founding PSF. Raj’s work has also been published or highlighted in the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and Governing magazine.
