How Trella brought supply chains into the digital age

In this week’s episode of Making It: Trella co-founder and CEO Omar Hagrass delves into the practices that make a sustainable business, and offers advice to entrepreneurs looking to secure their first funding round. Hagrass and his co-founders completed a USD 600K pre-seed round with only a pitch deck in early 2019, showing that having a strong team ready to solve a big problem is a significant pull for investors.

Trella eliminates the need for middlemen between shippers and carriers, saving both parties time and resources.
