2013 FashInvest Speed Dating Wrap-Up


In one simple word – WOW!  Thank you to all the sponsors, investors, participating companies and most of all the NASDAQ for making this event an overwhelming success.

Duane Morris kicked off the morning hosting our coaching session for the companies. As always they made our job at FashInvest easy, providing wonderful facilities and delicious food. Thank you to all those coaches who offered their expertise and advise in helping the companies prepare themselves not only for the afternoon session but for all their capital raising efforts moving forward.

Our afternoon activities took us one block away to the NASDAQ. Now, how many people can ever say they had the chance to participate in the closing bell ceremony at the NASDAQ? After our event, the answer to that question increased by 40 as a mixture of sponsors, investors and company participants all gathered into the studio to close the trading trade by ringing the bell and giving a big group cheer. Pictures are available by request for all those who participated.

After the closing bell ceremony we all adjourned up to the second floor to begin the Speed Dating portion of the event. The companies all dug their heels in to begin a fast-paced two hours of trying to convince investors that their opportunity was worth a second meeting. Hopefully somewhere down the road we can be announcing that one or more of the companies received the funding they were looking for.

The event came to a close with a networking event and closing cocktail reception. Although tired, companies used this one last opportunity to mingle with the investors and to try and make a good impression. The food was outstanding and the evening ended with a lot of smiles and hugs.

Thank you all for becoming part of the FashInvest community because without all of you, none of this could happen. A special thanks to the NASDAQ, Duane Morris, LIM College, RCCB, and Cohn Reznick.
