Premier Conference for Fashion Tech and Fashion Commerce Entrepreneurs to hold event in Miami for second consecutive year

Miami, April 1, 2015- FashInvest is ready to take on Miami again for its second annual FashInvest Miami Capital Conference, held at the Miami International University of Art & Design. In its 6-year history, FashInvest has held a number of venture capital and entrepreneurial conferences, and this year’s event will focus on how emerging fashion tech companies can make their brands attractive to investors. Last year’s Miami conference proved to be a beneficial experience for the participants who attended, so FashInvest, in partnership with OS Fashion, decided to hold the event in Miami again. 

“Miami is a burgeoning region in fashion tech,” Erik Seel, COO and co-founder of FashInvest says. “Aside from the beauty of the city, the location serves as a gateway to the untapped South American market.” 

This year’s conference will be held April 28 - 30. Members of the fashion tech community are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to hear stories of success from the venture community, network and exchange ideas regarding branded goods, e-commerce, fashion industries and retail topics.

“We’ve always had a crucial relationship with FashInvest, supporting one another’s endeavors,” CEO and Founder of Open Source Fashion, says. “It’s just a natural extension that now we further align our relationship and provide for an experience where folks could take a day of learning through the OS Fashion Freestyle Conference and then they can also take the day to learn and discover through FashInvest. The two compliment each other very well- there’s just a natural cross-pollination within the community. 

The Fashion Tech Investment Conference will feature up to 15 selected, vetted and coached emerging and growth startup companies presenting their opportunities, in a quick pitch format with the goal of fostering strategic partnering and growth opportunities. The conference will also feature industry keynotes and powerful panel presentations along with a wide array of networking opportunities.

Tickets are now available for $199 prior to the event, and $299 at the event. Attendees who would like to take advantage of OS Fashion’s combo price can purchase tickets for $199.
