About us

The Supply Chain Finance (SCF) Community is an independent global community consisting of knowledge institutions, corporations, and supply chain finance professionals who share best practice and new research in an open, collaborative environment. In nine years the Community has become truly global. 

The aim of the SCF Community is to promote and accelerate the understanding, development and implementation of supply chain finance models. Its founder members are leading business schools supported by corporations, banks, consultancies and technology vendors.

Today the SCF Community supports research projects conducted by institutions connected to the Community and endorses several SCF initiatives like the Special Interest Group (SIG). From 2016 the SCF Community’s activities have expanded to include a global awards scheme, enhanced digital resources and events in Europe, Asia and the US.
The SCF Community is a not-for-profit institution managed by an executive board consisting of leading professionals and scientists in the field of supply chain finance.
