Entrepreneurship: Unleashing your Creative Ambition
Dillon Eisman |
• January 2020
After visiting a homeless youth shelter and discovering that not everyone has the privilege of deciding what they want to wear, Dillon Eisman set out to ensure that no one who receives second-hand clothing ever feels second-rate. For the past five years, Dillon has worked with major retail corporations such as Abercrombie & Fitch and youth shelters such as Covenant House to reduce textile waste by delivering clothes and confidence to those who need it most. He is the Founder and CEO of Sew Swag, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that upcycles damaged and donated apparel for homeless youth in Southern California. His talk focuses on how he built his company and the impact that stylish second-hand clothing has had on many people.
