In Q2, De Beers Group Ventures is focussing scouting efforts on startups whose products and services could support De Beers Group’s strategic focus on the Connected Supply Chain – to further digitise the end-to-end pathway of diamonds from recovery to point of sale, increasing automation.

De Beers Group Ventures’ first approved proof of concept related to this is focussed on leveraging IoT technology to automate weighing and inventory checking, with a possibility to gain material efficiencies in the diamond handling process.

If you would like to discuss ideas that relate to any of the above topics (or any other areas where you think your business could benefit from partnership with De Beers Group) then please get in touch with us at info@debeersventures.com and join us in pioneering a new diamond world.
