Calling all supply chain startups! It’s time to apply for Founders Camp 2022!
We’re grateful to have the continued support of Chick-fil-A, Lineage Logistics, and Schneider National. Further, we want to thank our media partner, FreightWaves and service provider sponsors, EPB and Market Street Partners. Founders Camp 2022 will begin the evening of Monday 10/10 and go through to the evening of 10/13 in Chattanooga, TN.
If you are a startup in supply chain with a strong founding team and early traction, this is for you. Startups that are looking to raise a Seed or Series A round will benefit from the programming that includes a two days of customer introductions and a special, “Founders Only” session that will expose them to leaders in the region’s supply chain industry including Craig Fuller, Founder & CEO of FreightWaves while touring unique supply chain operations including barge operations on the Tennessee River.
We encourage international startups who might be interested in expansion into the US to apply. We do not take equity or ask for a program fee to participate.
Benefits Of Participation
As in prior years, Founders will have access and opportunity to work with and learn from a global network of both founders and corporates who bring their own experience and resources.
Introductions to potential customers and partners. The best founders recognize there’s no better dollar than a customer’s dollar — and we agree. Founders will have face-to-face meetings with both mid-sized and large businesses to gain feedback on their product and discuss business development opportunities. In prior years, startups end up leaving our program with a multi-million dollar pipeline of potential customers and partners.
Exposure to operational best practices. One of the benefits is being able to join fellow Founders and spend time exchanging best practices throughout the week. Additionally, the “Founders Only” sessions will expose attending Founders to high growth leaders and operating environments to understand scale.
Fundraising Advice. The Dynamo team will offer advice and perspective on fundraising strategy for founders looking to raise Seed or Series A rounds. We are also happy to make post-program introductions to co-investors where appropriate.
“We were able to accelerate our understanding of customer problems and expand our network of supply chain decision makers at Founders Camp.”
Carolyn Mooney Co-founder & CEO, NextMv
Continued Ecosystem Support
Corporate innovation and startup engagement requires on-going commitment and we’re proud to have the continued support of recognized businesses across the supply chain landscape. To further the importance of corporate innovation, we will also host a special “Corporates Only” session on corporate innovation and best practices. We believe it’s important to have these conversations to continue building the future of supply chain.
A special thank you to:
Chick-fil-A, the nation’s leading fast food chain known for those scrumptious chicken sandwiches. Few may understand the role of supply chain, technology, and innovation in delivering an amazing product and best-in-class customer experiences.
Lineage Logistics, the world largest cold warehouser. Lineage has developed a robust technology capability as it builds one of the most sophisticated cold storage operations in the world.
Schneider National, a leading provider of final mile, truckload, intermodal and logistics services. Schneider National is committed to working with startups across its portfolio of offerings to provide a better freight experience for their customers.
A big thank you to FreightWaves, EPB, and Market Street Partners for their on-going support of this program.
