Partnering up with Drosos, RiseUp held “Meet the Creatives” event at the Greek Campus where plenty of young startups, investors, entrepreneurs, corporate, ecosystem players and eager hearts gathered to meet, network, connect. The crowed got to meet RiseUp’s very own Con O’Donnell who unveiled this year’s speakers of the RiseUp summit that will take place on the 8th, 9th 10th of December 2017.
O’Donnell announced that the new summit will be hosting Brain Collins, chief creative officer, co-founder, COLLINS, Eric Kuhn, chief marketing officer at Layer3 TV Inc, Adam Lisagor, founder at sandwich video, Dana Horska, associate investments at twofour54, and to add on they’ll be also having Allen Gannett, CEO at TrackMaven and Shadie ElNashai, Managing Director at Sandwich Video. More excitement is expected this year with a startup band, creative marketplace, film competition and creative pitch competition.
One of the creatives was Farida Temraz who glowed up the stage with her passion for her fashion brand (Temraza) igniting her first words with Thomas Jefferson’s quote “I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have it.” The founder of Temraza led us towards her successful journey of luck where she broke the rules trying to pursue her dreams and goals; knocking all the doors. She told her story about joining London Fashion Show with just her scanned sketches while the basic requirements were: must have a store in London, a capital of a million or so, and a whole lot of employees hired. The surprise was that her sketches alone got her a premium spot in this very fashion show! Her advice is to never underestimate your talents. Just hit the road and keep going! She ended her inspiring talk with “If not you, then who? And if not now then when?!” This is definitely a question worth thinking Farida!
