Fox Williams mentor wearable tech start-ups as part of the Top Pitch programme

Fox Williams were invited on 11 July 2016 to be a mentor as part of the Top Pitch programme, a start-up accelerator programme for wearable technologies launched by Topshop in collaboration with corporate innovation specialist LMarks. The programme was launched in order to locate and support pre-retail, wearable tech entrepreneurs to develop fashion based wearable tech products that can be sold to global consumers. Stephen Sidkin and Daniel Geller were invited to the Fashion Retail Academy where they held a workshop with the start-ups taking part in the programme on the key legal issues related to licencing agreements, how to avoid legal pitfalls as well as tips on successful partnering with large brands such as Topshop.

Stephen and Daniel received positive feedback from the start-ups and LMarks respectively saying that they found the session to be useful and informative.
