Supply Chain Relationships

Finding the right manufacturers and supply chain is the make or break for any product development. I will go in more detail on how to find them, nurture them, and keep them to make you (and them) successful.

About Josef Reed

Throughout my experience as an entrepreneur, I've encountered numerous setbacks to my operations that were outside my control yet still my responsibility to overcome. It made me pay attention to the most common similarities of success whenever one of my companies achieved it. Supply chain integrity is key for any company to build solid foundation, and I've found it critical for any product development. The manufacturers in your supply chain can make or break your company, so we will explore how to find them, nurture them, and keep them to make you (and them) successful.


Josef started his career as a complex systems integrator at NASA, despite having a past of teenage, high-school drop-out, homelessness. He grew into a serial entrepreneur, one of his most recent endeavors was founding and operating his own successful engineering company. He balances work and family life with his newest start-up, Krewe d8, his Mardi Gras brand of hemp-derived products. He spends his free time mentoring many start-ups through midsize companies and is always looking for new problems to be solved.
