BGSA Announces 2021 Supply Chain ‘Shark Tank’ Competition Winner
Award recognizes Venti Technologies for its disruptive autonomous vehicle technology and high growth positioning within the rapidly growing logistics field
West Palm Beach, Florida — BG Strategic Advisors, a leading advisor to the supply chain and technology sector, is pleased to announce and congratulate Venti Technologies CEO Heidi R. Wyle, Ph.D. as the winner of the Benesch sponsored BGSA 2021 Supply Chain “Shark Tank” competition. The competition, held during the BG Strategic Advisors Virtual Supply Chain Conference January 20-21, 2021, featured presentations from high-growth, technology-enabled supply chain companies poised for transformative growth.
“I am thrilled at this recognition of Venti and our autonomy technology by an in-the-know panel of logistics professionals,” said Heidi Wyle. “Venti’s market leadership in Safe Speed autonomy is transforming logistics operations for large customers not only by offering cost efficiencies and greater vehicle utilization, but also by providing proprietary logistics autonomy functions such as mutli-vehicle independent control and steering, automated tools for map-changes and the ability to operate in complex and tight spaces. We are seeing great success with deployments of our tug-trailers for customers in the $175 billion logistics hubs marketplace, and building a strong pipeline. We anticipate continued growth in industrial businesses and transportation hubs in the U.S. and worldwide.”
The Supply Chain “Shark Tank” finalists were judged by “Sharks” Herb Shear (former CEO, GENCO), Rob Howard (former CEO, Grand Junction, now a division of Target), and Jack Holmes (former President, UPS Freight).
In addition to winning the Shark Tank, for which the prize was $10,000 of legal services from AmLaw200 firm Benesch, Venti Technologies was also voted best company by the conference attendees.
