You've started your business and are  ready to explore your funding options. Do you have a viable business idea that is attractive to venture capital firms or do you have a 'mom & pop' model? Do you bootstrap, harness a relationship with an angel investor or do you go after VC funding? 

Collectively Savvy will feature  venture capitalists, incubators and crowdfunding platforms who will guide you towards creating a plan that is ideal for your business entity and fundraising goals.

Fashionable 

July 28, 2018

Women of Color are known to be the ultimate trendsetters! Yet, we are a minimal percentage of the fashion industry. How does one go about creating a profitable fashion brand? How do you create a brand that survives beyond trends and become a cultural icon? Do you have the right funding method needed to start the process? Are you ready to start?

Collectively Fashionable is the discussion on how to forge a sustainable brand successfully and achieve longevity.

We are hosting our first networking event with some unique entrepreneurs in the spirits industry. We will be speaking with five incredible women who have either started spirits labels, work as mixologists or brand ambassadors.

We are gearing up for a teeny, tiny, retreat. You will be spending the day getting pampered! We will also have a discussion with four ladies in the health and wellness industry about preserving safe spaces for women of color. This event is super intimate and will not be open to a huge audience. We want to make sure that all of our participants really enjoy the day with us and go home feeling refreshed.
