Join QIMA and Kathleen Chan, Calico founder and CEO, to discuss the new era of technology-driven global sourcing in this Q&A-style webinar.
Kathleen founded Calico in 2020 to provide an end to end product development platform that helps brands and their factories get to market faster, as well as achieve greater visibility and control with a global network of pre-vetted factories. Prior to Calico, Kathleen founded and grew several direct-to-consumer brands taking their revenues from 0 to six-figures in under 6 months, was the youngest professor at Centennial College in Toronto and ran national marketing campaigns at Microsoft Canada.
