Shippabo is a cloud-based supply chain management platform built by a team of shippers and supported by logistics experts. Through Shippabo, businesses can oversee their supply chain from anywhere, at any time, and on their terms.
Why solve this problem?
In today's global trade system, businesses only get access to their inventory availability when it reaches their warehouse. What happens at the factory and during the transportation from factories to warehouses is a black hole. There are half a million US businesses that struggle to ship, track and control their inventory movement from manufacturers, which directly impacts their growth and profitability. Shippabo wants to give businesses the ability to track SKU movement from factories to warehouses so that they are armed with inventory intelligence to compete in today's e-commerce market.
Hardest thing about being a founder?
Balancing growth, scalability, management, and fundraising - pretty much everything. =)
Biggest piece of advice for aspiring founders?
Share success but also challenges with the board early.
Most exciting moment so far?
When customers think of Shippabo as an integral part of their supply chain and expand usage month over month.
