Finding Funding: How Supply Chain Finance Unlocks Global Growth

Featuring:
P.J. Bain, CEO, PrimeRevenue
Jack Pierse, co-founder and CFO, Wayflyer
Robin Gregg, CEO, RoadSync

Moderated by:

Trevor Williams, Managing Editor, Global Atlanta

Global supply chains can open up arbitrage opportunities and drive competitiveness, but as we all learned during the pandemic, they also can also introduce cascading chains of uncertainty. If not careful, companies face the danger of growing themselves into a precarious position where orders come faster than inventory — and cash — can be replenished, especially in e-commerce.

How can executives solve this logistical conundrum and fix bottlenecks that threaten to stymy sustained growth?

Enter Supply Chain Finance, an emerging field that sits at the intersection of logistics and financial technology, two industries where Atlanta has particular strengths. Join executives from three fast-growing Atlanta companies to explore how innovative technologies and funding solutions can unlock global growth and smooth out bumps on the path to sourcing and sales success.

Introductory remarks by Ben Harris, Director, Supply Chain, Bioscience and Advanced Manufacturing at the Metro Atlanta Chamber

Key Takeaways:

    • Explore new solutions available for funding e-commerce growth — without taking on debt.
    • Learn how invoice financing is different from factoring, and how it can make companies competitive when sourcing from overseas.
    • Understand the nuts and bolts of how payments get done in the trucking and warehousing industry.
