In this episode of Behind the Grind, Brian and I talk with Jeff Delkin and Rachel Speth, Founders of Bambu, about how they are mitigating COVID19 supply chain disruptions they have faced over the last three months of the COVID-19 crisis.
A challenge that first presented in China, as factories closed, but then moved to the US where retailers were forced to close.
About the Behind The Grind Series:
Through this podcast series, Brian and I will speak about the realities (as we know them) of entrepreneurship.
More than just bamboo products, we are makers of contemporary eco-friendly products created from renewable materials such as bamboo, cork, coconut, hemp and other sustainable materials. Created with imagination and integrity our unique designs that celebrate form, color and texture using low impact materials and processes. Design with the planet in mind.
