Journey

Our mission

Sourcing and procurement strategies have a direct impact on economies, societies, and the environment.

Ravacan’s goal is to empower manufacturing companies to achieve their mission by:

  • enabling data-driven decisions for sourcing & operations
  • accelerating innovative products’ time to market

Our Team

We are a team of industry experts. Our focus is on bringing modern tools to all supply managers so they can stop losing time consolidating data in Spreadsheets. With Ravacan they can focus on value-added tasks like sourcing and capturing innovations from their suppliers.

Noah Eisner

Advisor

Noah has over 20 years of experience in B2B software. In 2005, he co-founded Coupa Software (COUP) and grew the company from the initial concept to 100's of customers. In addition to founding Coupa, Noah previously held leadership roles at Amazon Web Services and Oracle.

"I don't often decide to get involved with a company after a first meeting, but Ravacan was different. Right from the start, I could tell that Anne-Sophie had a potent combination of 1) deep experience with Fitbit, Rolls-Royce, and others, 2) passion for solving a critical business need, 3) technical expertise, and 4) the ability to listen to her customers and advisors. I've loved the procurement and supply chain space for over 20 years. We're at a point where the supply chain shock has become commonplace, with tariff wars, the coronavirus, and oil wars being recent examples. I think Ravacan can be the critical agile supply chain business system that's required for 21st-century buyers and their suppliers."

Noah holds over a dozen patents graduated with a BS in Operations Research / Industrial Engineering from Cornell University and an MS in Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management from Stanford University.
