Today's Top Stories  
Exploring PE opportunities in supply chain tech
Supply chain tech—which leverages data and analytics, AI and machine learning—is crucial to the transformation of the supply chain. Severe global disruptions in the last couple years revealed critical weaknesses across operations and have highlighted the need to strengthen and transform the industry, placing new urgency on stakeholders to re-evaluate their strategies.

Our latest analyst note explores the growing complexity of the supply chain due to globalization and ecommerce, and how private equity can benefit from investments in this tech sector.

Some key takeaways include:
  • Global supply chains buckled under labor shortages, distortions to demand and constricted capacity of manufacturing and logistics services. Technology is crucial to strengthen their resilience by improving efficiency, flexibility and visibility.

  • Private equity investors can benefit from the fragmented tech-enabled services market to drive scale and value in more established companies through additional capital, add-on acquisitions and expansion in both geography and services.

  • Logistics and transportation are core subsegments of supply chain tech in which technological capabilities can drive significant long-term growth.

Preferred Return Podcast: It's time for angel investing to evolve
Angel communities have been held back by manual tools and workflows that prevent collaboration on deal flow, slow down investing decisions and, ultimately, prevent broader participation from those that would like to invest in the startup asset class without the typical constraints of investing in a VC fund.

Jason Burke, Founding Partner at TBD Angels, decided it was time to take matters into his own hands by building software to solve the challenges he was experiencing firsthand. Thus, All Stage was established to provide investment ecosystems with a modern technology platform. Tune in to learn more; the future for All Stage and angel investors everywhere appears to be brighter than ever.
