This year’s conference will again feature Daymond John, star of the ABC hit show “Shark Tank,”, as moderator.

Of his pending appearance, Bettua said, “We are excited to be part of the 3rd annual FashInvest conference. Coming to this industry from technology start-ups a few years ago, where the early-stage capital infrastructure is strong and the startup culture is nurtured, it was surprising to see such a platform lacking for entrepreneurs in this industry. FashInvest has filled that void.”

“With living space decreasing and airline luggage fees increasing, people need more efficient ways to live and travel,” says Bettua. “There’s been little innovation in travel gear since wheels were added 25 years ago. We saw an opportunity to solve that and customers are responding well.”
