Startup Weekend Fashion & Tech Tehran 2017 Edition
Why fashion and technology?
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.).
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.
So whoever you may be, and whatever dreams and aspirations you may have, come and take part in a weekend that could change your life!
And even if it doesn't, you can be sure that you will come away from the event with an extremely awesome and memorable experience.
