When September or October Saturday
A whole day!?! Yes, indeed. You will be amazed what you can accomplish in a day when you are away from distractions. Bring your business plan, your marketing plan, and be prepared to discuss your product development process. By the time you leave, we want you to have formed and started to implement new ideas.
Why Attend? Successful entrepreneurs make time to analyze what's working and where improvements can be made. Input from others can be inspiring and super helpful! Think of this as a day with a fabulous advisory board.
Who Should Attend? Those who have established their apparel business and are looking to grow. Each company may bring three team members. Space will be limited to five companies for this first event. We want to be sure everyone spends ample time with the mentors. Haven't yet launched? Sign up for our mailing list, we may have an event for you in the future.
