Company Description

Assent is the supply chain sustainability management solution for the world’s most responsible, sustainability-focused complex manufacturers. The #1 business risk for complex manufacturers is hidden. Most supply chains were never built with sustainability in mind, and most manufacturers do not have deep visibility into their supply chain risks while outsourcing the majority of their production. Shaped by regulatory experts, customers and suppliers, Assent is the foundation manufacturers need for cross-enterprise sustainability. At Assent, your work will help bring transparency, sustainability, and fairness to the global community.

We’re one of the fastest-growing technology companies - from $5 million to $50 million ARR in under five years! As the global leader in supply chain sustainability management, we provide transparency into the supply chains of some of the world's largest and most successful companies, including 75 percent of Fortune 500 companies. In our most recent funding round, we raised $350 Million USD in funding led by Vista Equity Partners. This funding will allow us to continue to scale with purpose, and add exceptional talent to our already remarkable team. Assent is the first North American software company to achieve both B Corporation Certification and Advanced Status with United Nations Global Compact. This reflects our deep commitment to embed sustainability not only across our organization, but as part of how we drive positive impacts for our communities and the customers we serve.
