ScaleUp Radio

Apr 26, 2023

Hello I’m Granger Forson or find me on LinkedIn.

This time on ScaleUp Radio I speak with Adam Jacobs the owner of Bloom Procurement Services.


Bloom is an innovative business that links the public sector and it’s needs for services with suppliers based on output needs not procurement contracts. They started just over 10 years ago, have 100 staff and celebrated their 10 year anniversary in the Houses of Parliament.


What’s interesting in Adam’s story is how being an entrepreneurial leader is about ensuring the vision is great, and that everyone always understands it. It is never a once and done thing!


As always, we cover a lot of ground, including:


 - Your business culture is never done. You must work at it constantly and develop it.

 - You must build the “plumbing” first to make the value flow, then you can scale your business.

 - It is so important to build in the business the opportunity for Networking that leads to Collaboration that then leads to Innovation.

- Businesses succeed by small improvements everyday by everyone.


What is wonderful about this conversation with Adam is how his passion for helping our public services achieve better outcomes at less cost through clever procurement drives everything his business does.
