Founder Q&A with Contingent Co-Founder & CEO Tai Alegbe

For the first time in decades, supply chain disruption has become a consumer concern. From access to vaccines and medicine to the availability of toilet paper, supply chain resilience has become a priority for enterprises, customers, and governments alike. 

Given this trend, we are excited to participate in the £1.7M seed funding round for Contingent, a supply chain risk solution that enables companies to detect, map, and monitor their supplier risk and operational resilience. Having backed the team at pre-seed in late 2019, we are thrilled about their growth to-date and their promising future to come. 

“We are building a business for the future. And it just so happened that the COVID pandemic has accelerated that future.”

Together, they dig into the Contingent story and discuss some of the upsides and challenges of fundraising in a remote-first world.
