For a $2,500 participation fee your company can:
- Tap into an audience of entrepreneurs, fashion industry thought leaders, technology investors
- Experience real-time consulting support and strategy guidance from industry experts
- Own a key piece of media that showcases the strengths and possibilities of your company
- Create a long-lasting piece of content to use toward public relations and customer acquisition goals
- Reverberate the published “On-Air Challenge” interview with a series of 6 advertising spots on subsequent episodes of “Fashion Is Your Business” to reinforce your brand message
A here’s what a company founder had to say about her experience :
“Going into the On-Air Challenge, I didn’t totally understand the value of the experience for me, the Startup Founder. At first glance, it reads like just another speaking engagement that ends with the perfect promotional tool: An untimed discussion about my favorite topic – My company. However, the experience far exceeded this expectation. As a founder, I thought I knew, understood and could explain every nook and cranny of my company. During the course of the expertly guided conversation, The Open Source team was able to unearth and expose areas of development we hadn’t covered, as well as areas of value we hadn’t considered relevant. I urge every Founder, regardless of your stage, to go through this exercise. Whether you need practice answering spontaneous questions, want an unbiased point of view, or hope to walk away with potential partners, its value far exceeds the investment.” – Susan Bruch, Founder of Your Style Unzipped
