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)

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

The Leadership Team develops, curates, and organizes a series of events that seek, encourage, and include a wide range of views on the most significant problems related to global supply chain networks, as well as the innovations and technologies that may be deployed to solve them. Diversity of ideas and perspectives from our members, our audience, and the speakers we invite to share their work with us is critical.

To achieve our mission we must provide a respectful environment for our speakers and audience, one that is conducive to multidisciplinary and collaborative problem-solving.

#TNYSCM33 – Book Talk: The Exponential Age - #SupplyChainTech Edition

About this Event - #TNYSCM33 will feature a #BookTalk with Azeem Azhar, author of The Exponential Age: How Accelerating Technology is Transforming Business, Politics and Society.

There are two ways to think of exponential technologies: first, they are technologies that benefit from Moore’s Law; and second, their positive performance characteristics increase exponentially, while the related costs of producing and adopting them in industrial and consumer applications decrease exponentially.

In this #BookTalk, we will discuss how these technologies affect supply chains since supply chains are affected by business, politics, and society. We will also discuss what Azeem has learned as he has observed the COVID-19 pandemic unfold while he was writing the book.

Space is limited, so sign up soon. Note that this event will be recorded and the video posted to our YouTube channel.
