Manufacturing in a Pandemic: Peer Roundtable about Resilient Supply Chains

Graphic: Manufacturing in a Pandemic - Zoom discussion

In partnership with Greentown Labs, FORGE held a virtual roundtable discussion to provide information and foster discussion between startups about resilient supply chains. The event kicked off with an overview of supply chain disruption trends that FORGE has observed amidst COVID-19, followed by discussion about the experience of the startups in attendance, as well as the importance of supply chain mapping in navigating crises like the current situation.

The discussion reinforced the importance of diversifying and localizing supply chains. Additionally, it gave startups a valuable opportunity to discuss with the suppliers in attendance how to best approach vendors with questions about sourcing and supply chain mapping. Based on feedback from the event, FORGE looks to continue to host informative discussions like this one to provide startups with the tools they need to build transparent relationships with vendors and resilient supply chains.
