Life as a fashion tech entrepreneur…it’s not as fabulous as you think it is.
When your computer doesn’t move as fast as you want it to.
When the workload never ends.
When you get anxiety attacks at 3am.
When the tech community doesn’t take you seriously because a) You’re a woman and b) you come from the fashion industry.
When a VC says your valuation is too high.
When the staff complains to me about how hard they work.
Trying not to snap when doing an investor presentation and the demo is not working.
When a potential investor passes on investing, but later calls you to get a fashion internship for his daughter.
What it feels like after a long day of pitching.
When a VC tries to intimidate you.
When you try to explain to your former fashion colleagues what it’s like to work for a startup.
When you try to explain to your new colleagues why you left the corporate world.
When a private equity guy asks you if people are really going to buy fashion online.
When an investor is more interested in your French accent than your pitch.
The feeling you get after a pitch well-done.
