Ignite Innovation Forum on CrowdFunding 3/11/13

 Ignite Innovation on CrowdFunding: Mon 3/11/13 @10am-11am

Women in Innovation is supporting women who innovate and encourages women to invest in women. So, the next week’s Ignite Innovation on CrowdFunding will be just about that: how does a woman who innovates fund her venture.

“It’s not your body that’s wrong; 
it’s the clothing that’s not designed 
right for your body!” says Margaret Spencer, founder of the DRES System. Margaret recently began a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to finance her innovative line of dresses to get her company a jump start.  She helps women dress their unique shape and teaches others tobecome certified stylists. The goal of her design is to make women feel confident and value their unique shape. Instead of using fruit names to denote body shapes Margaret came up with Diamond, Ruby, Emerald, and Sapphire to represent the four primary body shapes. The acronym for these gems shapes make up the name DRES. The dresses are made in the USA with organic bamboo fabric.

Margaret will be our guest at the Ignite Innovation Forum to discuss what it takes to finance innovation on Monday March 11th at 10am-11am.

If you are interested, please join us – send us an email (our event registration does not function currently) to event@womenininnovation.org and we’ll email you the directions and other details. The conversation will be videotaped for later use on the WIN website.

Find out more about Margaret’s Kickstarter campaign – maybe it’s a good opportunity for you to show some #PursePower!

    I can’t wait to share more about how Kickstarter works and how my campaign is going so far. We have 23 days to go! At this event I will also be showing my innovative DRES dresses. Looking forward to audience feedback. See you soon!
