Eyes On Freight Now Backed by 500 Startups
Eyes On Freight, an online service that helps shippers manage their supply chains on one central platform, has joined 500 Startups. 500 Startups is an early-stage seed fund and accelerator program founded by PayPal and Google Alumni.
According the company website, Eyes On Freight focuses on a “whole supply chain model,” allowing shippers to manage freight, imports and exports, warehousing, fulfillment, packaging, and more from one central platform.
500 Startups has invested in over 1,000 new companies throughout the world, primarily in the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, India, China, Indonesia, and throughout the Middle East.
“This is an amazing opportunity for Eyes On Freight, as 500’s advisers and affiliates are some of the brightest minds in the industry,” said Chris Nyenhuis, the company’s co-founder. “With their help we will continue to build our brand on an international level.”
Currently, Eyes On Freight, which is based in Columbia, Missouri, works with partners and companies in over 22 countries and provides shippers over 58 different types of services. “With 500 Startups’ support those numbers are expected to grow dramatically in the near future,” said Nyenhuis.
