The built business simulations, you don't play them on your own, but you play them in a team. That creates a very nice blend of learning hard skills and soft skills. We believe that learning by experience is a very powerful and a very lasting learning. And we oftentimes get the question if Inchainge is a software provider or solution provider, and I'd like to think that we are a solution provider. So we come up with a solution for companies that need to optimize their value chain or supply chain, and the solution that we bring to the table is to take them through a program of experiential learning. Actually, I believe Inchainge is a company that delivers learning experience, and software is just the tool for delivering that.
The Blue Connection really started from my professorship at Windesheim, where I focus on the physical and financial supply chain, and how these two work together. So we took the core of The Cool Connection, which is the business game on Supply Chain Finance. And we took that to another level and created a circular business game, focusing on circular economy, which became The Blue Connection.
The Fresh Connection business game is generally focused on supply chain management. Supply Chain Management, in our view, is a team sport, each company, no matter what their size is, and each organization, has in some shape or form a supply chain, and for those supply chains to run well, people need to work together. That's often lacking, people are disaligned, focused on their own functional silos and that's what The Fresh Connection tries to solve to make people work together and become alligned and run the supply chain successfully.
We have The Cool Connection, we saw there was a big need out there in bridging that gap between the finance community and the supply chain community. These people tend to talk a different language, so building that bridge between these two communities in a company was one of the main messages we want to bring across.
We deliver, for all of our simulations, already at level of bachelor students, all the way up to the boardroom of companies.
Inchainge has grown tremendously over the past couple years, even though Corona was happening and the crisis was materializing. We noticed, of course, that impact learning, experiential learning, and remote learning really caught on in that period. But on top of that, we can see that our topics on supply chain and circular economy resonate very well with our clients. And we, of course, are extremely pleased that we can actually create an impact by reaching so many professionals and so many students around the world. In the end, that's our mission as a company - to develop value chain leaders that can make a difference in this world.
