Next big steps for Procurement & Supply Chain Academy

Since 2011, we have grown organically to a company with a strong financial structure, as confirmed by external IFPSM audit.
Our customers say we have disrupted the corporate procurement and supply chain training market – we thank them gracefully for these comments.

We have grown rapidly and are now 40 people strong with over 150 blue chip clients, and now it is time to take the next giant step forward. We will develop a global corporate board in order to further professionalize the business. We will consider additional strategic options such as investing in a third vertical, closely related to our supply chain and procurement offering, so that our customers will benefit greatly. If we see an opportunity to significantly accelerate our growth beyond what we can achieve alone, we will offer part of our capital to external investment. We promise you to continue to raise the bar for the entire procurement and supply chain training market for many years into the future.
