Fashion and Music Entrepreneurship Conferences Launched for Global Entrepreneurship Week 2012
Following the success of our SMWLDN Fashion Day, we're happy to announce two free-to-attend upcoming events, focusing on digital and enterprise in the creative industries of Fashion & Music.
Enterprising Fashion (14 Nov) and Enterprising Music (16 Nov), taking place as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week (18-22 Nov) will bring together experienced entrepreneurs, early startups and individuals thinking about taking the plunge and setting up businesses in the fashion and music industries.
Designed for current and future entrepreneurs, existing startups and established companies looking to innovate, the events will provide insight into how markets and consumers are changing, how business and business models are adapting and where this disruption provides opportunity.
Backed by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) the events combine the central theme of of (GEW), ‘Pass It On’ to bring together full-day conferences that provide forums to hear from the leaders in the field, get practical help and support and the chance to learn from the experts and each other through keynotes, panel Q&A and collaborative sessions including a table-top expo for startups and the ‘ideas exchange’ to facilitate networking and collaboration.
From data-driven fashion to collaborative consumption, group purchasing dynamics, fast fashion, sustainable brands and the impact of digital and social technology, the fashion industry is undergoing a seismic shift in its structure.
This disruption opens the door to entrepreneurs, and the free-to-attend Enterprising Fashion conference focuses on the opportunities, and how to grab them, the challenges, and how to navigate round by tapping the best brains in the business.
Using a combination of experienced entrepreneurs, mentors, investors and analysts, we’ll explore the changing markets and business models with insight, practical advice, networking and the opportunity to pool knowledge in a collaborative ‘ideas exchange’ session.
This free event is ideal for current and future entrepreneurs, existing startups and established companies looking to innovate. Space is limited, so best to grab a ticket early.

Perhaps more than any other media, the music industry has felt the chill wind of change more than most. From iTunes to Spotify, Songkick to Soundcloud a new breed of entrepreneurs are re-shaping the music business.
Social and digital technologies have been at the heart of this dramatic shift and whilst the incumbents have been challenged, high-speed connectivity, frictionless sharing, the rise of peer-to-peer, the power of fan-generated content and the ubiquity of social networks have driven innovation out of crisis.
Enterprising Music, a free event, shines a spotlight on the opportunities that this revolution is opening up, through a mixture of keynotes, panel sessions with Q&A through to collaborative problem-solving sessions, the event brings together established entrepreneurs, industry experts with new startups and individuals looking to build their businesses.
This free event is designed for current and future entrepreneurs, existing startups and established companies looking to innovate. Space is limited, so best to grab a ticket early.
