Finding Manufacturers and Understanding Supply Chains
If you’re about to launch an e-commerce business, one of the first things you’ll need to figure out is your supply chain. Who are your manufacturers? Where do you find them? Who’s distributing your product?
And if you have your product out, as your business grows, you may still find yourself with the same questions as you look for new manufacturers, or solutions to increasingly complex supply chain.
Join us on July 27th as we chat with Yossi Nasser, CEO of Gelmart (a manufacturing supplier that has private label accounts with Walmart, and launched brands like Primark and Lively), as he gives us an inside perspective on how you should choose manufacturers, and other details about supply chains.
We’ll discuss manufacturing and supply chains as a whole, and certain challenges and opportunities that arise when it’s focused on fashion and clothing.
