Business Angel Investments for Fashion and Lifestyle
Finnish Textile and Fashion and Finnish Business Angel Network FiBAN invite fashion and lifestyle companies and up-and-coming designers to a kick-off webinar. This is a unique opportunity to get a compact briefing to the world of business angels – what can they offer for you, and what do they expect from a brand?
This open-for-all webinar starts a series of three online and real-life events organised by The Finnish Textile and Fashion and FiBAN.
During this webinar you will learn the basics of angel investments and Finnish business angels. You will hear business angels telling about their ways of helping companies and startups on the way to success. They will also share their thoughts on the assessment of potential investment targets. Real-life company experiences complete this online event. The event is held in English.

Altogether 8–10 participants will be chosen by FiBAN further to ”Fashion and Lifestyle Pitch” which is to be held in May 2021.
Place: This webinar will be held on Teams. Registered participants will receive the link one day before the event.
Registration: Sign up for the webinar via this link by November 23.
Fee: The event is free of charge.
Why are these events held in English? This is the language used at FiBAN events – as a growing portion of FiBAN’s business angels are international. Also, for companies with an international mind-set and growth plans, it is important to be prepared and to prepare crucial documents in English from the start.
