FaB Fashion and Beauty Tech is coming to Montreal! We are excited to present a stellar panel of guest speakers for our first meeting.

**Prenez note que cet événement ne se déroulera qu’en anglais**About FaB Fashion and Beauty Tech
The FaB Fashion & Beauty Tech community was created in April 2017 in San Francisco: first the BeautyTech Meetup app, then the first meeting in Sept 2017 at Odile Roujol’s home with 60 people… the rest is history.  It’s now a conversation with 15 chapters in the US, Asia and Europe, including Los Angeles, New York, São Paulo, LatAm, London, Paris, Madrid, Berlin Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore, Philippines, and now Canada! We host monthly conversations around various topics such as sustainable fashion augmented reality, social media analytics, personalized beauty, etc. Direct-to-consumer brands are natively learning from the customers while new businessmodels emerge empowered by tech. We are proud that 70% of global attendees and speakers are female and minority founders. We believe diversity empowers innovation.
