January 2019. Within the framework of Colombiatex de las Américas, various institutions met to celebrate the transformation of the Fashion System, such as the Mayor’s Office of Medellin, Government of Antioquia, Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, Pontifical Bolivarian University, Productive Transformation Program, City of Manizales, Acopi Caldas, and TextilGrupo.
“We think that the message of Colombiatex this year is fabulous, because Connecting Knowledge is precisely what describes Inexmoda. We started working on this alliance thinking of all the regions of the country where we could cause an impact, and we have had some very successful projects. This alliance is strengthened every day with all the results that Inexmoda has shown,” added Camilo Fernández, manager of the Productive Transformation Program (PTP).
The Meeting of Allies highlighted some important figures in the Fashion System, such as Connection spaces by Inexmoda, which achieve an economic spillover of USD $ 27 million in the city of Medellín. On the other hand, in terms of Transformation projects carried out with various institutions, more than 102,000 business impacts have been accomplished, achieving a 24% increase in their productivity and a 40% increase in sales. Lastly, in the Knowledge area more than 81,000 people are reached annually through varied formats.
“Only knowledge can transform us; he who is not transformed will not connect. Preparation is costly but it is the only thing that can make us competitive. Colombia is a focal point of creativity and all this is thanks to the allies. Inexmoda works with you 365 days a year throughout the country to strengthen and transform the industry’s entrepreneurs. Through our alliances we must continue being committed to that creativity in order to highlight and strengthen it,” said Lorenzo Velásquez, Director of Knowledge and Transformation at Inexmoda.
Business transformation programs developed by Inexmoda such as Epic Innovation Challenge, Formal Productive Linking, Business Development, Victims Project, Colombia Transforms Fashion, and Transfórmate, among others, seek entrepreneurial union through common purposes which allow the development of market dynamics.
“I want to thank Inexmoda for being a great teammate. It is a very demanding strategic ally that we are lucky to have on our side. We are ready to continue inventing, innovating, and doing everything for the entrepreneurs of the Fashion System. Without Inexmoda we would not be able to make these projects possible,” declared Juliana Villegas, Vice President of Exports at ProColombia.
The event ended with recognition to each ally who worked with Inexmoda during 2018 and an invitation to all attendees by Carlos Eduardo Botero Hoyos, Executive President of Inexmoda, to continue joining efforts to connect knowledge. “We always say that this industry has an impressive future but it will only be possible if we all work hand in hand,” he concluded.
