Temasek joint venture to invest nearly $70m in supply chain startups

Reefknot Investments will focus on series A and B rounds of startups.

In particular, the firm looks to support the growth of series A and series B stage startups by providing market and resource access and guidance.

The firm’s focus on supply chain and logistics stems from a Gartner report which forecasts that at least 50% of large global companies will be using artificial intelligence (AI), advanced analytics, and internet of things (IoT) in supply chain operations by 2023.

Reefknot also plans to establish a global think tank with the goal of synergising new business models and technologies and act as a launchpad for startups seeking to positively create value and impact for the supply chain and logistics industry.

Apart from Temasek and Kuehne + Nagel, Reefknot is also working with global Asian-based investors EDBI, SGInnovate, Atlantic Bridge, Vertex Ventures, PSA unBoXed, Unilever Foundry and NUS Enterprise.
