Startup Fashion Week

Startup Fashion Week Media Launch Party
Startup Fashion Week is a project that showcases and educates aspiring entrepreneurs in the fields of fashion, business and technology to help reach higher in their careers. It sets out to provide the tools and create a bridge between the creative side and business side for aspiring entrepreneurs.

Startup Fashion Week will offer guests an array of events ranging from full day conferences, runway showcases, workshops, VIP receptions, a closing party and MUCH more! Entrepreneurs who attend Startup Fashion Week will feel a sense of direction, confidence and understand where to access the right resources to sustain the right level of success.

Founder and Executive Producer of Startup Fashion Week, Jodi Goodfellow says,
“As a business founder, I know how tough it is to build from scratch, especially on a budget with limited resources. These events will provide a unique opportunity for the type of mentorship, networking and knowledge sharing that will enable fashion startups to thrive. I remind entrepreneurs all the time that Networking is your Net Worth. (OmitLimitation)
