Spotlight: New York Fashion Tech Lab (NYFTL)

On June 8th, 2018, InStyle Magazine posted an article on 9 Women Who are Changing The Face of Fashion With Technology, featuring our CEO, Fang Cheng. 

Fang was listed first amongst the female talent who are tackling retail challenges with software services. 

The New York Fashion Tech Lab is a four-month-long program focused on female-led brands that find themselves innovating at the intersection of fashion, retail, and technology.

Through various competitions, Fashion Tech Lab, along with venture capital firms, entrepreneurs, and retailers, select six to ten companies to enter the official program (think of them as the "winners"), who get access to a network of mentorship, resulting in typically unaccessible meetings with industry executives.
