How did a college degree in mathematics and physics lead to a career in the supply chain? Brian Laung Aoaeh, co-founder of early stage venture capital firm Refashiond says the supply chain and math have a lot in common. The supply chain, he says, is just a big math problem that needs solving.

Refashiond has invested in 34 startups since its launch in 2019.

Aoaeh joins Talking Supply Chain host Brian Straight to talk about his journey from a math classroom to a supply chain investor, what he looks for in founders before making investments, how he sees the current venture capital market in an uncertain economy, and much more.
