We had a great time, on Tuesday 30 July 2013, during the business breakfast during which we presented our proprietary research on fashion finance.
During our presentation on fashion finance law, the audience was really paying attention and asking incisive questions on the tools and tips to get funding!
Please find below our video and slides of the seminar, as well as some information on the content of this cutting-edge presentation on fashion financing.
You will need initial funding to create your first, second or even third collection and set up your fashion business. While family & friends, grants and loans can be a source of financing, don’t underestimate the value of intellectual property (‟IP”) in the context of obtaining funding for your fashion business.
This video was created with the efficient and proactive contribution of the London Film Academy. Thank you LFA!
During this B@B, we covered:
- tools and tips to get funding;
- the different financing sources available to you;
- your business plan – key considerations;
- attracting third party financial investment – and the important role of IP;
- key clauses in partnerships or equity finance agreements, and
- next steps after you secured funding.
