Venture-capital firm VMG Catalyst said it has raised a $400 million fund to target startups developing supply-chain technology for retail and consumer-brand businesses, which have grappled with logistical snarls and now scorching inflation.

Consumer and retail businesses that optimize supply-chain processes will be better able to combat price increases, giving them a make-or-break advantage against competitors, VMG Partner Brooke Kiley said.
