The Supply Chain Finance (SCF) Community is an independent global community consisting of knowledge institutions, corporations, and supply chain finance professionals who share best practice and new research in an open, collaborative environment. In five years the Community has become truly global. Watch our video for an update.
The aim of the SCF Community is to promote and accelerate the understanding, development and implementation of supply chain finance models. Its founder members are leading business schools supported by corporations, banks, consultancies and technology vendors.
In 2013 the SCF Community held its first conference at Nyenrode Business University in The Netherlands. Since then, the SCF Community Forum has evolved into an annual event that brings together more than 200 participants from corporates, business schools, banks, technology firms and governments. At the same time, the Community itself has expanded to include more than 1,500 SCF practitioners in every continent. Today the SCF Community supports research projects conducted by institutions connected to the Community and endorses several SCF initiatives such as the Global Student Challenge and the SCF Academy. From 2016 the SCF Community’s activities are expanding to include a global awards scheme, enhanced digital resources and events in both Europe and Asia. The SCF Community is a not-for-profit institution managed by an executive board consisting of leading professionals and scientists in the field of supply chain finance.
