What we're about

The mission of The New York Supply Chain Meetup is to nurture and grow the world’s foremost open, global, and multidisciplinary community of people devoted to building the supply chain networks of the future - starting in NYC.

By some estimates, inefficiencies in the global supply chain impose overhead costs of between 15% and 20% of global GDP cumulatively - supply chain inefficiencies dampen corporate profits, and lower societal well-being. This presents an opportunity to solve a large and pervasive global problem, and to significantly boost global economic growth and prosperity in the process. The goal of the New York Supply Chain Meetup is to become a focal point for the formulation of questions, and the pursuit of the answers that will lead to comprehensive, sustainable and profitable solutions.

Building on the unique characteristics of New York City, TNYSCM will become the world's foremost multi-disciplinary community of practice for individuals and organisations committed to investigating and developing solutions for problems in global supply chain networks at startups, large corporations, academic institutions, and everything in between.

A particular area of interest is the use of distributed ledger technologies, and other cutting edge technologies, as a foundation for innovation in supply chain networks.

Mantra: The past ran on supply chains. The present runs on supply chains. The future will run on supply chains. The world is a supply chain. #TNYSCM (https://twitter.com/hashtag/TNYSCM?src=hash)
