On Friday November 2, Techstars will be kicking off the very first Techstars Startup Weekend in partnership with Levi’s® in San Francisco. Over the 54 hours, attendees will have the opportunity to work with top industry mentors to build startups in the retail and fashion space.

Whether you are a developer, business person, or just someone interested in the retail and fashion space, this event will give you the chance to work alongside the leaders in the industry and bring your idea to life.

“We want to continue to push the envelope in innovation,” said Julia Mehra of the Global Direct-To Consumer (DTC) team behind the event. “We feel the spirit of entrepreneurship is alive in the Bay Area and we want to continue to host, join, and propel conversations happening around innovation, particularly in technology and retail.”

The event kicks off Friday with opening remarks from Marc Rosen, EVP and president of DTC at Levi Strauss & Co. From there, participants will brainstorm and break off into teams to develop the best concepts.

The teams will be guided and mentored by experts from LS&Co. and Techstars, a worldwide network that gives entrepreneurs the resources and connections to succeed. The weekend culminates with teams pitching their ideas to a panel of judges that includes Rosen and Yulia Groza, LS&Co.’s VP of Ecommerce Technology, as well as executives from Pinterest and other leading Bay Area companies.

Come bring your idea to life and join us as we explore the future of retail!
