2021 Supply Chain “Shark Tank” Competition Winner

Congratulations to 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.

Heidi R. Wyle, Ph.D.

“I am thrilled at this recognition of Venti and our autonomy technology by an in-the-know panel of logistics professionals. 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.”
