Open Innovation Challenge 2018|Atlanta

Innovation is trending across the supply chain, yet significant challenges remain:

  • 51% of manufacturers, retailers and logistics providers are unsatisfied with the effectiveness of supply chain innovation emanating from their organizations*
  • 52% of manufacturers, retailers and logistics providers have no formal innovation strategy (including no budget, no best practice, no process)*

*data from eft’s Innovation Report

Is your organization an innovation leader but would like some bright minds to help solve a supply chain hurdle?

In an effort to help, we’re looking to team-up with a leading retailer, manufacturer or logistics provider who has a real-world supply chain challenge that needs solving as well as 6 teams of innovators.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Putting your company forward as the real-world supply chain challenger
  • Putting forward a team of innovators looking to put their ideas towards a real-world supply chain challenge

Here’s what’s involved

  • 6 Selected teams of 3-5 individuals will be given one week to create an effective solution to a real-world supply chain challenge
  • Each team will then pitch their solution to the challenger on June 5th in conjunction with the 3PL and Supply Chain Summit, Atlanta

(Note: each team will be vetted to ensure teams that go through to the challenge fit the challengers requirements)
