Dynamo boosts disruptive trucking startups

Venture capital firm is investing in, advising logistics, supply chain and transportation firms

There are currently 173 trucking startups wit 525 investors listed on the website Angel List, a site devoted to startups and their investors. There are 1,525 companies listed under the term logistics and further research will likely yield more companies related to transportation and logistics that may be listed under other terms. The point is, there is no shortage of companies looking to disrupt the transportation and logistics markets.

All those companies, though, are looking for help. Some have found individual investors, others are still searching. Some startups have top-notch leaders who have gone through the experience of growing a business, others have not. Regardless of what stage the company is in, though, there is help available.

One such company that is assisting startups is Dynamo VC, a venture capital firm based in the heart of Freight Alley in Chattanooga, TN.
