Being an entrepreneur in the fashion industry is tough. It is notorious for being cut throat and very expensive.
With the goal of encouraging funding for medium to smaller size businesses the FashInvest Capital Conference was created as the only place in the world where entrepreneurs within Fashion, Branded Goods, Retail and Fashion Tech start-ups can showcase their business vying for investment opportunities. Now in it’s second year, the organizers will welcome over 60 national and international capital sources (angel, institutional angel, venture capital and smaller private equity firms) attending the event who are looking to form relationships with viable candidates. The FashInvest Capital Conference will feature up to 20 selected, vetted and coached entrepreneurs presenting their company in an 8-minute format with the goal of fostering investment and strategic partnering opportunities.
The Conference will also feature Keynote Speakers, panels and networking.
Last year over 15 companies participated and many received initial funding as well as sage advice in their overall branding and prelaunch efforts.
The deadline for applications is November 4th 2011. Companies that are interested in participating can visit www.fashinvest.com for the online application.
The Second Annual FashInvest Capital Conference will take place on December 7 at the Fashion Institute of Technology
(F.I.T), 227 W. 27th Street, New York City.
