TECH+STYLE GLOBAL Strategic Plan
Our vision is to provide a global infrastructure for fashion technology entrepreneurs where professionals and creative thinkers from a wide range of backgrounds explore the boundaries between art, science and technology.
This is a participant-driven organization where all will be encouraged to collaborate and thrash out new ideas for materials and technology, and find ways to generate innovation and collaboration to create fashionable, functional, comfortable solutions to meet everyday needs, whether it’s in sports & fitness, outdoor & leisure, home & leisure, home care or health care.
We are early adopters of a digital revolution that is transforming the fashion industry. We have the drive and capability to make smart fashion technology concepts into reality.
To push the limits of both fashion and technology to make life more convenient by providing interactive clothing suitable for commercial and everyday use.
To invent these technologies and advance the industries that will define generations to come.
Identify and consolidate opportunities that combine wearables with the technology, medical, music, film, and home furnishings industries.
To become a world leader in combining fashion and technology and bring these products to market.
For Austin to have a foothold in this global industry (fashion/tech) and to have a collective voice.
