I am so proud to have been part of CDL for the past 6 years. As a seasoned start-up veteran and someone who believes deep science is our only path to resiliency; I believe there is no better place in the world to build than with CDL.

CDL's Commerce Stream has successfully brought together high potential, scalable startups in areas as diverse as e-commerce, supply chain, pricing and operations. The setup provides a low overhead way to identify and support these startups in a manner which is one of its kind and highly effective for mentors like me as well as for the startup founders.
