The first Fashion & tech Startup Weekend in Paris and part of the first ever Global Fashion Battle! How will you use technology to shake up the fashion market?
Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is encouraged to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
Q. Is this program a good fit for me?
A. If you're passionate about innovating within the fashion and retail space, this is for you. Whether or not you work within the industry, your experience, passion, and perspective can lend towards the development of a successful idea. Programmers, marketers, strategists, creative professionals, and all around driven people will come together in this weekend of connections and innovation.
Q. I’m a web developer…what do I have to do with fashion?
A. Anyone can help disrupt an industry, regardless of what their skill set is. If the product is software related, then you are integral to production of the product (think Pinterest, Polyvore, Etsy, Piperlime, ASOS, Gilt, etc.) or hardware related (fitbit, iBeacon, etc.).
Q. I’ve got a fashion idea but I have no idea where to start.
A. We know...this is not a question, but we want to comment on this. Startup Weekend Fashion Innovations is the perfect opportunity to pitch your idea, gather a team and see if you can turn your idea into a business! We’ll give you the tools to get your idea produced in an incredibly short amount of time, test it with your would-be consumers and pitch the business to a panel of judges.
