Synch celebrates Stockholm fashion week 2016 by inviting some of our favourite fashion entrepreneurs with a tech twist (or tech entrepreneurs with a sense for fashion) for a cordial chat about their stories and the relationship between fashion and technology.
The event will take place on 1 February 2016, from 17-19. Please join us for a relaxed evening of founder stories, networking and drinks at our office at Birger Jarlsgatan 6, just a few steps from the catwalk, but with no dress code.
Confirmed participants include founders from Neue Labs (http://www.neue-labs.com/), APPRL (http://apprl.com/) and Dedicated Institute ( http://dedicatedinstitute.org ).
