With the mission, “Where Fashion Meets Finance”, FashInvest does just that. The organization prides itself in bringing together the best and brightest of the fashion, branded goods, apparel and fashion-tech entrepreneurial and investment communities in one room, on one day.
Since inception in 2009, by chairman, founder and leading venture capitalist David J. Freschman, FashInvest has become one of the most respected platforms for fast-growth and emerging companies in the market. As a catalyst for economic growth and entrepreneurial support, FashInvest has aided a myriad of start-ups in securing funding and creating beneficial connections for operational growth.
“This has been an exciting journey to tap into the passion of the fashion and fashion-tech entrepreneurial community and bring together essential funding elements and advisors to accelerate their success,” stated Freschman. “With an overwhelming applicant pool for this year’s conference and reporting of emerging companies on the FashInvest blog, investors have now identified this sector as one of great potential.”
From a pool of a few hundred applicants from around the world, only 20-25 companies will be selected to participate and present their business models to some of the most-active financiers and executives. The event will also include notable keynote speeches, education panels, and sufficient networking time for attendees to foster new relationships, as well as, investment and strategic partnership opportunities.
Prior to the conference day, all selected companies will go through an intense mandatory coaching day where the FashInvest executive team and invited venture capital, private equity and corporate investors will offer useful insightful tips and feedback on the company pitches for impact and maximum results.
Applications for company participation close on Friday, November 16, 2012. For more information, visit fashinvest.com.
