Polsinelli and Harvard Business School Club of New York are hosting the event, "Industry Insiders: Raising Money in Fashion and Retail," on June 13, 6:30 PM, at Polsinelli's New York office.*

Fundraising in the fashion and retail industry is not an easy task and can be tricky. On the one hand, brands are expected to show profitability and traction, but in the early stages patient capital is required as brands build a following. How should brand owners approach financing when tackling the critical tasks of financing inventory, acquiring customers and securing growth capital to scale? Don't miss this opportunity to hear a fascinating panel discussion with fashion and retail industry insiders who invested in some of the world’s leading brands. Learn how to successfully target and appeal to top investors, and understand the optimal timing for raising start-up capital from outside sources. Is crowd-sourcing the right fit to your brand?  What are the risks involved, and most importantly, what are investors REALLY looking for in their portfolio brands?
