The pandemic has also dramatically increased the usage of di...

As the pandemic creates supply chain chaos, Craft raises $10M to apply some intelligence

During the COVID-19 pandemic supply chains have suddenly become hot. Who knew that would ever happen? The race to secure PPE, ventilators, minor things like food, was and still is, an enormous issue.

Most of the platforms are deployed ‘empty’ and require the client to populate them with their own data or ‘bring their own data’. The UIs can be outdated and still have to be juggled with manual and offline workf...

Cowboy VC’s Aileen Lee: Your coronavirus scenario planning should be more conservative

The tech industry (and the world at large) is not experiencing temporary anxiety — the uncertainty we’re all coping with is the new normal.
