MEDIA ALERT: Knowde CEO Ali Amin-Javaheri to participate in Chemical Week Forum

“The industry is not looking for Amazon for chemicals, a buyer-centric market that is all about pricing and availability. Suppliers want to be able to differentiate themselves and their brand. More tools are needed to support customers than just a simple transaction platform. You need to be able to communicate, manage quotes and requests, negotiate. All of this is really important prior to being able to manage a transaction.”

Ali Amin-Javaheri, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Knowde
