EARLY-STAGE COMPANY SOLUTIONS

Rethinking Supply Chain Architecture for Rapidly-Growing Companies

The old supply chain model is broken.

  • Dependence on dedicated, China-based sources for finished product
  • Risk of interruption
  • IP theft
  • Low responsiveness
  • Every startup re-learning operations lessons
  • Early stage operations expertise areas largely offloaded to disparate offshore vendors

Why is this important to investors and managers in early-stage companies?

Today's high-growth hardware companies need the following:

EFFICIENCY
  • Cost reductions (cash efficiency)
  • Inventory reductions (capital efficiency)

SCALABILITY
  • Flexibility, responsiveness (seize opportunities)
  • Enable global expansion

SPEED
  • Faster implementation via experience, capabilitY

RESILIENCE
  • Protect vs SC interruptions
  • Protect vs IP theft
