On September 8th, our Founder and CEO, Haley Pavone, presented the Pashion Footwear product and business model live for the first time. Pitching to a room full of 300 potential investors, it was an incredible opportunity to spread word of Pashion like never before.
The pitch went of without a hitch, including a first peek at some of our launch designs and adaptable technology, as well as a surprise wearable prototype demo! Having only received the 3D-printed wearable prototypes 48 hours before, Pavone daringly wore them out on stage…where they performed perfectly and earned Pashion a standing ovation from the crowd. It was a true testament to Pashion’s technical design execution to have a wearable model hold up for a ten minute pitch even in the entirely wrong materials!
We were able to formally announce the beginning of our first fundraising round, network with several investors, and have a simply fantastic time. Just a little under a year into this company, we know that Demo Day was a major stepping stone for us into the much larger future for Pashion Footwear. Be sure to stay tuned for updates on our launch, and follow along with our story both here and on social media!
