Global Fashion Battle: Startup Weekend FashionTech Paris

The main event of the first Paris Fashion Tech Week, the Global Fashion Battle was a weekend long hackathon supported by Startup Weekend, now Up Global. As the lead organizer, I recruited volunteers, jury members and weekend mentors, and acted as lead facilitator. We had a sold out event at NUMA, one of Paris’ first and most prominent co-working spaces.

The winning team selected by the jury at the end of the weekend went on to pitch in front of a panel in Poznan, Poland at their 8th annual Start Browar art symposium.

It was the Paris team, Clothier, that took home the grand prize!
