Pro Series: Fundamentals of a Textiles Startup
As a partnership with Dr. Jesse Jur of Wilson College of Textiles, Pro Series for Spring 2021 is focused around textiles startups! This series of workshops brings in textile business experts to work with participants on various topics surrounding launching a textiles-based business. We encourage all entrepreneurial students to sign up, even if you aren’t interested in textiles specifically. This series of workshops will be informative to entrepreneurs of all kinds!
For this first workshop of the semester, we will get you caught up to speed on textile advancements and introduce key terms in the business world to understand the market. Additionally, you will learn how to identify the problem statement and the value proposition through a teaming exercise. The highlight of the session will be an amazing talk by Jordan Schindler, CEO at NuFabrx, an innovative textile company that works to deliver medical treatment through textile garments. Bring your passion and be ready to learn fundamental ideas for startups!
