*ABOUT*

Needl provides data powered high quality business leads in the FMCG retail market.

Needl mission is to transform the consumer goods industry to be more transparent, efficient, open and sustainable. 

We believe that the heart of this transformation is with the creation of meaningful business opportunities worldwide in the FMCG market, from the clean ingredients to the brands, from the eco-packaging to the retailers.

We are building a B2B SaaS platform that connects all key stakeholders in the FMCG industry,  generates high quality data-based recommendations, trusted business introductions and efficient business leads management leading to first business meetings.

 

Needl has been created in 2020 and has a highly dynamic and international team of around 20 people, working in the Champs-Elysees, in Paris

In Needl, Product and Tech teams work very closely in 3 Impact Teams: “Data & Core Platform”, “Recommendation” and “Interactivity”. The Data & Core Platform team focuses on building a reliable and evolutive consolidated database, performant and efficient algorithms and core services. The Recommendation team focuses on collecting user data to provide reliable and high quality recommendations to buyers and sellers. The Interactivity team focuses on leveraging recommendations results to create first contacts, get more information and set up a clean basis of a trustworthy long-term business relationship.

 

Data is the cornerstone of our business and we have many sources : our clients using our online platform Needl.co and expressing their profile and needs, our sales and marketing teams collecting customer data through our CRM, external data sources…

Furthermore, we operate in a complex industry where there is a certain logic in stakeholders interactions, where taxonomy is essential to generate good recommendations.
