Global supply chains have been steadily growing in complexity for years – spurred by the proliferation of e-commerce and increasing consumer expectations (widely deemed the “Amazon Effect”). More recently, the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated those pre-existing dynamics and further highlighted the failings of a traditional, siloed, supply chain framework, as many companies found themselves underprepared and slow to respond to a shifting market environment. As a result, businesses have been motivated to re-evaluate their current technology and processes and are seeking solutions that emphasize visibility, adaptability, and automation across the supply chain.
At Catalyst, we believe software and tech-enabled services enabling more efficient supply chain management are poised for outsized growth in the coming years. We are excited to meet and partner with growth stage companies that are driving forces behind more efficient supply chains.
