Covid Offers Rare Chance to Reimagine Supply Chains: ft. Managing Director of Reefknot Investments Future Proof by Basis Set Ventures

    • Business

Factories that used to make tee shirts are now making PPE. Products we used to be able to ship to ourselves same day are now on back order for weeks. Much of this is the result of supply chains buckling under the weight of Covid-19. As the dust settles, enterprises will have the opportunity to go back to the drawing board for the first time in years to rebuild supply chains from the ground up. The result will be more robust and modular global production and sourcing.

In this conversation with Marc Dragon, Managing Director of Reefknot Investments, and BSV investor John Mannes, we discuss the valuable data enterprises need to vet new suppliers while ensuring products can get to consumers as fast as possible. Reefknot is a venture firm backed by Singaporian sovereign wealth fund, Temasek and global logistics company Kuehne + Nagel.
