Pune Startup is a Case Study for Harvard
BOSTON, MA (IANS) – Pune-based startup Buy Hive, which offers a global B2B sourcing platform for small and midsized buyers, is now a case study on the Harvard Business Publishing platform, it said on September 16.
The case study, titled ‘BuyHive: A Digital Platform for the Transformation of Global Sourcing’ focuses on key decisions facing Buy Hive which is on the cusp of disintermediating the sourcing business with a new business model.
It has been authored by Dr. Kannan Ramaswamy and Dr. William E. Youngdahl, the faculty of the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University.
The startup was founded in 2019 by Minesh Pore, along with sourcing and supply chain professionals Brent Barnes and Michael Hung, to address the growing demand of experienced buyers for more efficient ways to source quality products without expensive and exhausting annual travel to sourcing fairs in Asia.
“As a bootstrapped startup, we are honored to have Buy Hive’s case study by Thunderbird School of Global Management published on Harvard Business publishing platform,” said Pore, CEO of Buy Hive.
Harvard Business Publishing is a not-for-profit, wholly owned subsidiary of Harvard University, reporting to Harvard Business School.
Buy Hive connects the buyers with freelance sourcing experts based in the world’s leading sourcing markets who know the best suppliers from their own professional work experience.
Buy Hive’s platform offers buyers worldwide access to more than 5,000 independent and local sourcing experts specializing in all major consumer product categories.
