London fashion law firm Crefovi and Own-it, an institution which offers intellectual property advice for the creative sector, hosted a free webinar on ‟Fashion business partnerships and investment: IP as a business asset”, on 13 February 2013.
You will need initial funding to create your first, second or even third collection and set up your business. While family and friends, grants and loans can be a source of financing, don’t underestimate the value of intellectual property – yours and other people’s – in the context of securing funding for your fashion business. We study the available fashion business partnerships & investment, in this webinar.
In this one-hour webinar, we will cover:
- the different available funding sources;
- your business plan – key considerations;
- attracting third party financial investment – and the important role of intellectual property (‟IP”);
- other types of investment, e.g. creative partners, who are crucial to your business success, and how you can pay them;
- key clauses in partnership or equity finance agreements, and
- next steps after you secured funding.
The webinar ‟Fashion business partnerships & investment” is moderated by Silvia Baumgart, Own-it Programme manager.
When: 13 February 2013, 12:00 to 13:00 (GMT)
Where: on your computer, by way of webinar
