The Pre-Seed Angel Fund for SaaS Startups

Supply Chain Risk Management made easy. Riskmethods‘ Social Supply Risk Network enables companies to monitor major risk objects of their multi-tier supply chains. Risks can be detected early and risk managers are enabled to pro-actively react in order to prevent any damage caused by supply chain breakdown. Riskmethods‘ holistic approach covers the entire risk universe along any supply chain. Disruptions caused by (e.g) natural disasters, supplier side financial weaknesses, absence of compliance, change of markets and drop of quality are fetched into the system, analyzed, weighted, displayed and reported to any device chosen.
