Speaker for MIT Startup Exchange Operational Efficiency and Supply Chain Innovation Workshop

Deadline: October 26, 2020

MIT Startup Exchange is seeking 8-10 startups to present at its December 8 Virtual Workshop on Operational Efficiency and Supply Chain Innovation (11 AM to 1 PM ET).

Theme - The Covid-19 pandemic has challenged many companies’ operational models, and will accelerate a global trend towards supply-chain resiliency and operational efficiency. Key to both will be a massive increase in gathering and analyzing operational data, and acting quickly and decisively on the insights gained. Successful operations in the coming years will, then, be more Connected, Automated, and increasingly Resilient in the face of disruptions.  MIT and the MIT-connected startup community have been innovating in supply chains and operational efficiency for many years, and we have commercial, industry-ready solutions that will be key to this transformation.   This workshop will present perspectives from industry leaders, academics, and corporate investors, while showcasing several MIT-connected startups in this field.   

To apply, please provide the following:

  • -brief description of your startup's technology-based product/services & 1 compelling use case;
  • -brief description of current market traction (e.g. pilot, validation results, paying customers, etc.);
  • -speaker bio & a few words on the speaker’s experience as a speaker (optionally, including a video sample);
  • -one-paragraph explanation of the unique fit between the event/theme and the startup’s vision, technologies, products, or services.
