Female execs are in short supply in the Bay Area, and a woman who leads a fashion tech company is one of those rare unicorns you just have to see in person. To improve your odds of such an encounter, SF FashTech is bringing Polyvore CEO and Co-Founder Jess Less to San Francisco for a "Behind the Curtain" discussion.
BTC assembles folks from the San Francisco fashion, design, and technology communities to share ideas on topics ranging from entrepreneurship, business, tech, design, products, funding, life, pet peeves, and more. At this month's event —on March 25th at Bespoke in Westfield San Francisco Centre— Lee will be discussing what it means to manage a global community and the bridge between tech and fashion.
Doors for the event open at 6pm, introductions and the Q&A will start at 6:30, and networking and snacks will continue until 8:45. Tickets are $30 on Eventbrite, but Racked readers can get a 30% discount through
March 15th March 25th with the discount code RACKEDBTC.
Jess is known for dispensing ridiculously great startup advice, so come prepped with all your entrepreneurial questions.
Update: The discount has been extended!
