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 50 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. To continue our global leadership ambitions and to support us during the transition from a small start-up to a mid-size company, we have listened to offers from potential investors. We have chosen to partner with Fin.Co ( – a private equity company that is an independent provider of funding for growth. The investment of Fin.Co means we now have a partner that will provide strategic guidance and that we will invest in a third vertical – the Sales Academy.
