    Guest Speaker Opportunity - I teach Business of Fashion courses at The Art Institute of CA-SF (Market between 7th/8th) and am looking for 1-2 guest speakers to visit my Entrepreneurship class this Spring.
    Last night's presentation inspired me to have the students focus on wearable technology for their business/design ideas. We use the Business Model Canvas of the Business Model Generation book for the course and would likely map out your business model when you visit. If you are interested in being a guest speaker - to share what it takes to be a wearable technology entrepreneur - please email me at [masked]. The class meets on Mondays from 1-5pm starting April 1 (no joke) and runs 11 weeks. We would love to share an hour of your time.
