Overview

TealBook’s mission is to transform the supplier data market to empower the digital enterprise. Our founder, Stephany Lapierre, saw an opportunity to create a single source of truth for accurate, harmonized, and refreshed data, giving organizations the information they needed to remain competitive and agile. Today, TealBook leverages state-of-the-art machine learning concepts to deliver high-quality supplier data light-years ahead of traditional, manual methods. We’re continually accelerating our data roadmap, introducing new partnerships and integrations, and expanding our team as we work towards our vision to advance the world through better supplier data. 

Our Story

“I was visiting a client who wanted to introduce me to a supplier, and she grabbed a two-inch-thick binder filled with hundreds of business cards from vendor contacts. She couldn’t remember the name of the company, but she knew she would recognize the card. She spent about ten minutes flipping through each page. In that moment, I saw an opportunity to centralize and aggregate supplier intelligence for all stakeholders.”
