Introducing Spendsetters: The Road to Resilience

An important lesson from the COVID-19 crisis is that in order to be resilient, we need to rally together. Despite the ongoing uncertainty, there are many examples of people coming together to help in the spirit of community— from essential workers on the front lines to businesses pivoting to create much-needed solutions for society. 


This has been incredibly inspiring to us at Coupa. We’ve been fortunate to engage with many organizations in the business spend management community that are making a significant positive impact right now. These Spendsetters provide us with a constant fuel of hope and energy.  


We want to highlight some of these stories to help inspire you too.  Over the next several weeks, we’ll be highlighting the heroic efforts of the BSM community under the umbrella of Spendsetters: The Road to Resilience.  


The stories we’re hearing fall into 3 distinct types. We’ll be sharing each of them across this blog and our social media channels:


Companies combatting COVID-19. These are stories from the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19, of treating patients, tracking the disease, and pivoting supply chains to create test kits, masks, ventilators, and vaccines.  


Companies coping with COVID-19. These are stories of organizations who are staying afloat by making resilient business decisions. They are navigating through this massive economic fallout and want to share their strategies to help others.  


Companies coming together around COVID-19.  Finally, we’ll tell some truly amazing stories of organizations who are coming together to help one another through this difficult moment. 



To begin, we’ll start with some great organizations combatting COVID-19.  


The ones featured below are working to arrest the spread of COVID-19 by producing PPE and tracking the pandemic. In the coming weeks, we’ll highlight organizations creating tests, treating patients, and beating the disease through medical research, in addition to debuting our “coping with COVID-19” and “coming together around COVID-19” stories.

Thank you to AB InBev, Diageo, Lyft, MGM Resorts International, Nordstrom, Palantir, Pernod Ricard, and Uber for giving back to the global community, and helping all of us by delivering value where it’s most needed.
