For several centuries, trade has mostly been conducted in the same manner. A buyer and seller come to an agreement with each other on commercial terms, money changes hands, and goods are exchanged. Though we have digitized some elements of the trade process, in many ways it’s really still just an electronic version of how trade has always been conducted.
Trade is simply, communication and relationships.
Bridger was born with a very simple idea, which was, Could we make it as easy to create business relationships and connect the trade between them as it would be to connect you and me on Linkedin?
In the last couple of years, my team and I have developed a background in running B2B businesses, Product Management at Inventory financing startups, and building automated SCF products for banks.
Last year, we asked ourselves.
How do we simplify supply chains? Why is it impossible to connect businesses when Linkedin and Facebook solved this ages ago?
Bridger is a social network + Supply-chain + Fintech.
What exactly does Bridger do? I’ll attempt to simplify this via 3 core features.
- Bridger collab: Allows Businesses to Communicate, and send/recieve trade documents seamlessly across the long tail of businesses.
- Bridger Pay. Connect supply-chain payments, using all the methods businesses love to play with.
- Bridger finance. Just-in-time zero-collateral financing for buyers and suppliers.
We are more about the network, rather than the transactions.
We know this will be big if it works.
The future of B2B Trade is not pushing more paper faster, It is the embracing of the digital revolution to ensure that orders are received faster, goods get shipped faster, invoices get sent instantly, and suppliers get paid faster – with transparency across the entire process.
Excited to push the boundaries of the world’s business possibilities with Bridger
