Agenda subject to change:
- 18:30 – Networking food & drinks
- 19:00 – Panel Discussion: Unleash your Working Capital.
Working Capital is scarce, and large amounts of working capital are trapped in your supply chain. Reports show that the leading 2,000 U.S. and European companies have up to $1.2T of trapped cash, which slows down supply chains and causes unstable conditions for millions of businesses. So, how can trading partners, financial institutions, and platform providers work together to free all this locked-up capital?
