2010 Inaugural Capital Conference
FashInvest Inaugural Capital Conference was a huge success and was the first time ever over 300 entrepreneurs, investors and industry representatives gathered together to explore and engage with emerging growth companies within Branded Goods, Fashion, Retail and Fashion Tech. Held in December 2010, the Conference featured 15 entrepreneurs presenting their company opportunities in an eight minute format, to financiers and operating executives in the audience in search of investment capital and strategic partnering opportunities as well as “Featured Companies” providing quick pitch summaries. Top experts in the industry participated in panel discussions focused on topics surrounding strategies to grow, attain investment and achieve exit. The Conference featured Leading CEOs as keynotes including Neil Cole, CEO and Founder of Iconix Brand Group, Norma Kamali, as the Legendary Designer Keynote, and Ben Fischman, CEO and Founder of Rue La La, as Entrepreneur Keynote. In addition, powerful panel presentations and plenty of networking opportunities captured the remainder of the day. As with any great conference, networking is a must, and as such our conferences began with a memorable opening reception where investors, entrepreneurs, CEOs and invited guests join to meet and greet, exchange ideas and capture the excitement of innovation in the industry. The event concluded with our Holiday Gala in the Great Hall.
