Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…
Flora Davidson and Gus Bartholomew are the Co-Founders of SupplyCompass, a product development and production management platform that enables fashion brands and manufacturers to produce better, together. The cloud-based software is transforming the fashion industry, by digitising global supply chains and making sustainable sourcing easy and cost-effective for brands and every player in the supply chain. The platform enables brands to manage the entire product development, sourcing and production process from design right through to delivery, all in one place. To date they have raised £1.8m and with offices in London, Mumbai and Hyderabad, they have delivered 1 million+ products for leading brands around the world. Flora and Gus will be talking about the impact of technology in fashion to drive sustainability.

This dinner is perfect for…
Emerging and established fast-growing fashion and interior brands that are looking to start or expand on their sustainability journey, or those working across the fashion supply chain.
This dinner is open to a limited number of service providers / advisors (unless a TableCrowd partner). Please see the details under the 'Join this table' button.

If you'd like to join but don't fall neatly within the above categories, please email us at hello@tablecrowd.com to discuss whether this is the right dinner for you. Also feel free to check out our other dinners as another might match you perfectly!

The dinner conversation will be…
The COVID-19 crisis has had a massive impact on the fashion and supply chain industries. Coupled with the ongoing need to build a new operating system for global supply chains with sustainability at its heart, this is a perfect time to hear from Flora and Gus who will be speaking about:
✓ Navigating uncertainty in the fashion and supply chain sectors
✓ Why post COVID-19, digital transformation and sustainability become even more important
✓ Key tips for creating a more efficient supply chain
✓ Why including sustainability in your business model is so important
✓ The story of SupplyCompass and what’s next!

Who are Flora Davidson and Gus Bartholomew?
Flora Davidson and Gus Bartholomew, the co-founders of SupplyCompass, moved from London to Mumbai to start SupplyCompass in 2015. They lived in India for 2 years to build the business on the ground, spending much of their time on the road researching and visiting 300+ manufacturers and suppliers. Their mission since the start has been simple: reimagine and redesign a new way of sourcing, one that works for people and the planet. They believe that to transform how goods are designed and produced, full digitisation of supply chains is the only way forward, but that this alone will not be successful unless done in collaboration with suppliers and underpinned by strong supply chain relationships, made and maintained in person.

What’s included?
You get a private dining experience with a knowledgeable speaker, 2 course dinner with wine or 2 soft drinks plus highly curated and relevant crowd. This is a dinner, not a dropin event, so we ask that guests turn up on time and don’t leave until after the Q&A.

Flora has a background in innovation and consumer research. Working at SupplyCompass combines her passion for constant creativity, adventure and innovation.

Gus is responsible for driving sustainable growth across the business. He believes that the best route to creating seismic change within the global fashion manufacturing industry is to find virtuous loops that drive improvements for people, planet and profit.
