start-up contest 2019

From a total of more than 20 entries from across the continent, the five finalists for the second edition of the European Supply Chain Start-up Contest have now been selected. These companies are still in the running to receive the award for Europe’s best supply chain start-up. The ultimate winner will be chosen based on votes from the attendees as well as the jury during the inNOWvate Supply Chain Event, which is being held on 22 May at the De Rijtuigenloods venue in Amersfoort, the Netherlands.

Despite the considerable diversity among the shortlisted start-ups in terms of their scope and solutions, one thing they all have in common is rapid growth. They are living proof of the huge amount of supply chain-related innovation currently taking place in Europe. After lengthy discussions, the members of the jury finally reached agreement and it can now be confirmed that the five finalists for the second European Supply Chain Start-up Contest are: Ambrosus, Circular IQ, MotionMiners, Stockspots and Shipnext.

All five companies will be presenting their solutions both on the main stage and in the start-up area during the inNOWvate Supply Chain Event on 22 May. Between them, the finalists offer solutions spanning blockchain for supply chain visibility, sustainable procurement, AI process optimization, an automated online shipping marketplace and a solution to tackle warehouse waste with a platform for on-demand warehousing.

This contest for the most promising supply chain start-up is being organized by Supply Chain Media, publisher of the Dutch-language Supply Chain Magazine in addition to Supply Chain Movement. Earlier this year, Supply Chain Media analysed European start-ups and published a Maturity Matrix showing their relative positions in ten solution categories, ranging from online management of upstream suppliers through to last-mile delivery to consumers.
