How to Spend Less Time on Paperwork, & More Time Developing Your Brand’s Creative Vision

Join Us on February 23, 2016 at 6:30pm at Fashion Incubator SF

Entrepreneurs are often feeling overwhelmed as they try to become the experts of every subject matter field affecting their business. When creating an apparel company, it can be hard to focus on the more creative brand building aspects if you’re bogged down by business logistics. We want to put you in touch with services providers who can streamline your business, take care of the research stress, and the daily paperwork tasks.

We’ve put together a panel of companies that help solve some of the most common challenges apparel companies face with the logistics of growth. How do you hire your first employees, manage your inventory across several online retail platforms, keep track of your income and expenses, and limit risks of opening a physical store? This panel has your answers, and the tools to assist you.

Aside from having the tools to help, these panel members have been in your shoes too. They know what its like to be entrepreneurs and leaders. We’ll ask them to share secrets of effective time-management and task delegation.
