Taulia’s second summit provides unique opportunity for Midwest and East Coast companies to learn about groundbreaking supply chain finance techniques

San Francisco, September 13th 2018: The second of Taulia’s two upcoming working capital summits completes its speaker roster as leading practitioners from Global 2000 companies line up to share their unique insights on technology-led working capital optimization. Opened by ‘the most powerful woman in payments’ Elizabeth Buse, and featuring working capital expert Andrew Wilson, the summit is set to be a powerful forum for companies across the Midwest and East Coast to learn how to supercharge their own working capital strategies.
 
With up to $215 billion locked up in working capital in automotive alone according to global advisory PwC, companies across the Midwest and East Coast including automotive, manufacturing and pharmaceutical have the opportunity to free up this cash and put it to work to better compete in the digital age. In hosting the second of its inaugural series of working capital summits, Taulia is helping these companies learn more about this opportunity by connecting them with the leading practitioners in this exciting new field.
 
Andrew Wilson, advisor and former working capital lead at pharmaceutical AstraZeneca, commented: “Technology is simply a game-changer for anyone looking to optimize working capital. It enables companies to scale programs across their whole supply chain and quickly adjust them in the face of an ever-changing and unpredictable world.”
 
“Companies with large supplier bases and high supply chain costs are particularly well placed to take advantage of working capital innovations, unlocking much-needed cash for investment” said Matthew Stammers - Taulia’s Head of Marketing. “In bringing the Working Capital Summit to Chicago, we wanted to give Midwest and East Coast companies the opportunity to learn from the leading practitioners and be able to apply those lessons to their own businesses.”
 
The Chicago summit will be opened by Elizabeth Buse - a former VISA executive who is widely recognized as one of the most powerful women in the payments industry. The event also features leading working capital practitioners from pharmaceutical, industrial and telecommunications sectors. A full list of speakers can be found here.
