Description

The FashHack Week is a 1-week programme of day workshops and evening events, taking place from 23. October to 26.October. It is aimed at fashion & retail tech startup founders to accelerate their companies.

In just one week you will learn from the leading fashion tech mentors, founders and investors. With the best tools and approaches at your disposal, you’ll take giant leaps toward growing your fashion tech business.

26.10. Funding Day

Fashion’s rapid and dramatic transformation continues to create new winners and losers and investors are constantly looking for the disruptive concepts that are here to stay: AR/VR/AI, 3D printing, wearables, outsourcing, insourcing, ethical sourcing, accelerating trend turnover, fit solutions, visual search, customization, personalization, contextual commerce, sustainability, fast fashion, and of course, data.

On the 26th of October we will have a full day of sessions to introduce the key concepts on raising capital, starting with where to find investors and finishing with how to pitch to them.

The session will include:

1.00pm Investment Fundamentals for Fashion Tech by Campbell Unsworth, Director at General Standards.

This workshop will demystify key concepts on raising capital and will help you to get started. Whether you are raising through VCs or angel investors, by the end of the workshop you'll have a better understanding of this process.

2.30pm How To Pitch Like A Rockstar by Emma Zangs, Communicaton Coach & Co-Founder of MetaSpeech

The 45min workshop is an AMA type of session that will focus on the main problems that people have while pitching: how to co-ordinate hand gestures, eye contact, posture, voice and stance to become assertive and effectively "own the room". We will go on a journey through non-verbal communication through practical and dynamic exercises. You will learn how to focus on embodying who you are, by defining the attitude and energy you want to share. Finally, we will involve presenting to the group and receiving tailored feedback from the course leader.
