    It's great to have investors who understand supply chain and can be a great sounding board for decisions as we scale up.

    Supply chain labs helped us see a bigger picture of possibilities.

    We could visualise how domain agnostic we are in what we do though we started in fashion and lifestyle.

    SCL also opened possibilities of a strong advisory network to raise the bar on both market reach and solution thinking.

Startups optimising supply chains have strong tailwinds behind them

Image
There are four key factors:
FIRST

Need for building resilience due to the pandemic

SECOND

Changing geo-political dynamics require corporations broadbase their risks with better visibility

Third

Traditional distribution models are not relevant for new business models like quick commerce and omni-channel

Fourth

Focus of corporations on ESG requires better traceability than traditionally possible

Image
Companies of all sizes have to adopt technology to strengthen their supply chain. Not just for growth, but even for survival.

Supply chain resilience has become a board room agenda in companies across the world.

Every major consulting firm has advised clients that if they don’t digitise their supply chain, they can die.
