The DENYC just had its kick off weekends with intense all-day sessions (you can set your beach calendar to this — it’s always the first two best weekends of perfect weather of the summer — and these dedicated 32 designers are indoors without windows the whole time) — and guess what?
They love it!
Each year the faculty adjust the program to customize it to the class and each year the incoming class is further along in their business at the start than the year before. I co-teach growth strategies (with some marketing thrown in).
I’m particularly excited about the first fashion tech designer to participate in DENYC! A handbag that charges your cell phone! Wait til you see the rest! On second thought, don’t wait http://www.designentrepreneursnyc.com/participants.html
Look for pop-up shops featuring the alumni especially as the holidays approach.
