080 Barcelona Fashion. Investor Day
This year, 080 Investor Day not only aims to generate synergies and networking among fashion startups and internationally renowned investors on their investment forum but also to give visibility to emerging talents in Catalonia who have created their own fashion brands and want to connect with potential investors and established fashion companies.
080 Investor Day will take place on 28th June at 4pm, at Recinto Modernista de Sant Pau, including international speakers, Corey Moran (Google) and Matthew Drinkwater (LFC), and the leading International Investment Forum focused on fashion startups and emerging brands.
It should be mentioned that the 080 Investor Day Raising Brands, an initiative co-organized by Seed&Click and 080 Barcelona Fashion within the 080 Investor Day edition, is one of the most remarkable innovations of this year’s edition. The 080 Investor Day Raising Brands aims to showcase the most talented people who have created their own fashion brands in Catalonia within the last 3 years, in order to give them the opportunity to present their best businesses and get funded, all in just 5 minutes.
This way, 080 Barcelona Fashion turns to be the perfect platform for outstanding startups and designers to shine as our next industry leaders and ultimately, a place where big fashion players and investors can discover talents, innovation and investment opportunities.
The jury members of 080 Investor Day are David Drake (LDJ Capital), Jan Brinckmann (ESADE), Corey Moran(Google), Matthew Drinkwater (LFC), Enric Jové (McCann Worldgroup), Javier Blázquez (Baker McKenzie), Karina Riera (4YFN), Luis Lara (KPMG).
They will evaluate the five finalists and choose the best fashion startup but also the best emerging brand winning a prize valued at 100k thanks to our amazing partners: McCann, Baker McKenzie, Grupo Zeta, 4YFN, KPMG Impulsa and ESADE Creápolis.
Moreover and as another innovation, we are excited about creating a speed dating space that will last all the event and where both the 5 finalist startups and the 5 finalist brands, will digitally promote their products / services and their collections. This space will encourage networking among participants, investors, press and the public.
The entire event will be hosted in English to facilitate the participation and understanding of an international public, being thus consistent with the purpose of positioning Barcelona as an innovative and entrepreneurial hub also in the fashion industry. Just so you know, 080 Barcelona Fashion 2016 had 30.000 attendees last year!
