Fuel is Built for a Specific Type of Startup
We’re looking for supply chain innovators ready to work with an enterprise customer.
Supply chain is everything from product creation to customer ownership.
This encompasses the journey from manufacturing, outbound logistics and transportation, 3PL and consolidation, DC and warehouse management, inbound logistics and transportation, store back room, in-stock and on-shelf, last mile delivery, and return management.
We’re looking for startups working within and around last mile delivery, driver shortage, improved user experience, next generation transportation systems, robotics and automation, wearable technologies, augmented workforce, matching supply and demand, or other innovations that will transform the supply chain industry.
What makes Fuel different?
Collaboration Not Competition
We are building out this program to be one that focuses on collaboration: between both startup entrepreneurs and enterprise partners. We want to build a community, so we will not take on startups that are in direct competition and we are not running the program as a competition.
Tangible Business Growth
We expect you to come out of this program having made clear, tangible strides. Some smaller outcomes include feedback sessions, training, pilots and demos with enterprise mentors. But, our bigger goal is for you to leave with access to sales opportunities and commercial agreements that translate to revenue growth.
No Equity Exchange
We do not take any equity for this program because the expectation is that this will be a mutually valuable exchange between startups and their enterprise mentors through deep learning and connections. We simply ask for your time and commitment to make this program worthwhile for all involved.
