Following on from the major success of last year's Supply Chain Transparency series, we teamed up with Adidas AG, Deutsche Bahn AG, Volkswagen Group and Zalando to continue our collective impact format. We build powerful interdisciplinary teams in a creative and non-competitive setting to support impact driven organisations who are revolutionising the supply chain.
We bring different industries and people who usually don't work together to join our forces to achieve three major goals:
Strengthen and support innovative tech driven social entrepreneurs
Establish a collective impact format that encourages social entrepreneurs, tech community and industry experts to work together
Identify advanced (tech) solutions that deliver supply chain transparency
