SILQ’s core mission is to simplify global trade and create a cost-effective and sustainable supply chain that is accessible to everyone.

Some of the problems we need to solve in the next few years:

  • Financing for both factories and our clients which means lending money and all the technical challenges that come with it.

  • Scaling up our collaboration systems - comments, direct messaging and notification systems
