FashInvest's Speed Dating event brought start-up companies in the fashion, tech, retail and branded goods industries together with potential investors and gave each entrepreneur the opportunity to present their best 3-minute 'elevator pitch.' LIM College MBA students were on hand during the event to observe the process and gain valuable real-world exposure.
