Fashiontech scouting and shortlist

Fashiontech executive workshop

The FashionTech workshops are a core part of the Netcomm Suisse strategy towards the promotion and driving forward of a Lifestyle-tech Competence Center. The workshop series is composed of expert directors from different brands from diverse segments of the market, each with unique needs and competences which we aim to fully reflect in the final outputs of the workshop. It brings together leaders in the field to define strategic R&D guidelines for scouting and research projects of a future Lifestyle-tech Competence Center, as well as more general innovation strategies within the field.

The workshops aim to identify the innovation requirements between and within companies in the sector, build bridges across different economic areas, including between investors and brands/retailers/manufacturers and also to connect all these businesses with upcoming and valid start-ups/scale-ups. The workshops represent an initial step towards the development of a Lifestyle-tech Competence Center, which would benefit all industry stakeholders within Switzerland and beyond.



This specific workshop aims to review progress on themes and projects set out in previous meeting. Thanks to the support of investment management firm Loomish SA, participants will be able to evaluate and access scouted start-ups working in the home and living technology area. Loomish will also present a short list of relevant university R&D projects and tech corporations interested in co-financing innovation initiatives.
