Supply chains. Businesses constantly strive to optimize them. Minimize costs, reduce inventories, drive up utilization.

COVID19 has made everyone think differently, by exposing the criticality and vulnerability of supply chain dynamics to all businesses. 

* If you are a  customer facing business, how do you maintain "Business continuity’ when you don't have visibility to supply? 
* If you are the provider of supply, how do you ensure normal service in an era of lock-downs? 
* If you are a player in the supply chain, perhaps a marketplace, how do you balance both sides of the equation? 
* If you are a player serving anyone in the supply chain, perhaps with information services, how do you predict and forecast, track and measure?  
* How do you ensure safety of the human players who are needed to keep the supply chain operational? 
* What are the short-term and long-term implications for the startups?
* What about other supply chains like talent?

TiE Singapore calls on an experienced panel to deep-dive into the challenges of ensuring supply chain continuity, in the current Covid19 scenario. 

We have: 
* Carmen Yuen, Partner, Vertex Venture Management , and 
* Ankiti Bose, CEO & Co-Founder, Zilingo Pte Ltd 
to share an investor's and founder's perspective on this.
Moderated by Suresh Shankar, Founder & CEO, Crayon Data, and TiE Singapore Board Member. 

If you are a founder/investor or a keen observer of the changing entrepreneurial ecosystem, join us on Wednesday, 15 Apr, 5:00 pm SGT for these complimentary sessions.
