Redefining how businesses find and engage with government and commerdial policy advisors
Poligage Professional Services Marketplace
Poligage is a professional services marketplace that help experts connect with and cultivate more long term clients — and get paid while doing it.
Large organisations require the input of government and policy advisors to drive decision making and to guide them in defining their own policies, communications and directives. Although there are several major firms and consulting companies that offer policy advise, the majority of experts are professional consultants who run their own practices.
Ensuring that organisations find, and engage with the right Policy Advisor is very important, and the fragmented nature of this niche sector means that finding the right advisor isn’t always easy.
Poligage is seeking to open an entirely new market opportunity for policy experts and consultants, one that hasn’t been able to be monetized before. By engaging all the companies that aren’t ready for retainers, helping experts monetize their full sales cycle and by increasing spend from large organisations that would like to add project work to the retainers they hold, Poligage actively helps drive increased sales opportunities to the expert’s bottom line.
To create a professional service marketplace that would provide Poligage with a platform to facilitate search and booking for highly skilled experts, while also enabling these experts to respond to quote requests and sell reports and research.
