Kinnek is a B2B platform that allows small businesses to request and receive customized quotes from suppliers for their purchases. Getting quotes for major purchases is currently a very ad hoc and antiquated process for small businesses. They do not have the same resources as a large corporation or institution to maintain large procurement teams and implement enterprise-level procurement platforms.

However, they also do not have the luxury of easily finding quotes online for their purchases- commercial-quantity pricing and pricing on customized orders are difficult to find. Kinnek enables these small businesses to request quotes from many suppliers using a single request, for any major purchase. The process of requesting quotes, submitting quotes, and the resulting interaction between SMBs and their suppliers is all handled online through the Kinnek platform. Kinnek was part of AngelPad #5 in 2012.
