We had the amazing opportunity to visit the headquarters of LuluLemon today (11th February) in the context of the business week.
The premises are located in Kitstiliano area in a modern building of four floors. The first department we visited was the design department. We saw the process of creation with people working on prototypes and planning the next collection of 2015. There are three design spaces, each one is dedicated to one customer segment: women, men and kids/teens. Thus employees design clothes only for one type of customers, depending on what they like to design. If an employee is passionate by designing clothes for men thus he or she will focus on doing that.
Invoke was established in 2000 by three founders: David Tedman, Dario Meli, and Ryan Holmes. The company adds value through creating innovative digital experiences. Since the fusion of Invoke labs and Invoke media in October 2014, they have had two main kinds of activities: 1. they are well known for creating digital products such as the HootSuite or Brightkit and 2. they also support tech start-ups.
Second day of Business Week 2015, on Wednesday, 11th of February, started by a company visit of Traction On Demand, located in Vancouver. The company was created 9 years ago and they try to change the way to do business. We arrived in the morning and we were nicely welcomed by several employees of the company. The place looks very friendly and the company offered us some bagels and coffee as a breakfast.
