“What is FashInvest?
Put most simply, the goal of FashInvest is to create a community of key participants whose goal is to foster the development of the emerging growth companies within the broad consumer sectors of Branded Goods, Retail, Fashion and Technologies related to these consumer opportunities. We are focused on creating one of the most respected business platforms committed to company growth and formation.
We are building the community both through live events and through this website/blog. We have held several events, including our 2010 Capital Conference in NYC, which featured emerging growth companies pitching their business opportunities, in an 8 minute format, to an audience of investors, industry executive and high quality serviece providers. Our 2011 First Annual Spring Speed Dating Pitch Event in NYC, featured 70 entrepreneurs pitch their company and ideas, individually, to a room full of 30 investors and industry executives in a speed dating style format. Each “date” lasted 3 minutes a piece with participants rotating after each session. In addition to our 2011 Capital Conference, we will expand our events, over time, to other geographic locations.
