What’s next to invest in Supply chain?

The last 2 years demonstrated the negative interdependency of the global supply chain leading to shortages, delays, and supply risen prices.

It is calling for a new organization of value chain with new business models. Agile supply chains are expected to reach decentralization of production with local supply and affordable automation.

This session will discuss potential solutions and their expected ROI as well as the time frame for implementation.

Round table
What’s next to invest in technologies and business models improving ESG?

ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) can be a huge constraint on companies and investors, but it also represents a large awareness and demand from consumers, especially gen-Z and millennials.

ESG are gaining major importance in the current economy, propulsing new business models like circularity including reuse, recycling, reducing waste and packaging for a second-hand market as well as better exploitation of data.

To transform this new trend into a new economy, our guests will challenge the key success factors to offer a unique value proposition and attractive ROI in this field.

For deeptech technologies such as Neta’s one, Inpho was a great opportunity to meet key players and investors. This conference dedicated, especially, to hardware had a unique panel of speakers and was really inspiring. Julien Michelon

VocalZoom is a disruptive industry 4.0 startup from Israel. We came to INPHO Venture summit in Bordeaux France as part of our fund raising process. The venue took place in a great location, the one on one meetings were well organized and easy to manage, and the networking environment around, including the food were really good and gave incentive for investors to participate. We got at least 3 good leads from the event which is good for a 2 day event. Tal Bakish
