ConnXus is a Startup based in Cincinnati, Ohio that aims to ensure that companies partner with a diverse range of minority and women-owned suppliers. Their mission is to connect corporate buyers and suppliers. Rob Robinson, the founder and managing partner, previously worked with Fortune 1000 companies to improve diversity programs. While working with Fortune 1000 companies, he discovered the problem of incomplete diversity databases and expensive, often inefficient software. He decided to solve this problem by creating a more convenient and cost-effective enterprise that meets the needs of buyers and suppliers. Thus, ConnXus was born. Marked as a Startup to keep an eye on, ConnXus has a Diversity and Inclusion partnership with London-based Procurement Leaders for the next three years, and is poised to become an important player.
