April 2, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Refresh Miami, Aminta Ventures, Endeavor Miami and NEXUS for a fireside chat with FIGS co-founder and co-CEO, Trina Spear.
FIGS is revolutionizing and disrupting the $10B medical apparel industry through its line of tailored scrubs sold direct to consumer. FIGS scrubs are lightweight, stylish, antimicrobial, odor-free and wrinkle-free.
Spear and her co-founder, Heather Hasson, recently raised a $65 million investment round, marking the fourth largest raise by a female-founded company in 2017 and the 11th biggest deal for a U.S.-based, female-founded company since PitchBook began publishing its research in 2007.
Learn about this Miami-native’s road to success, the challenges she’s faced and her advice for others.
6:30pm – 7:15pm – Networking, drinks and light bites
7:15pm – 8:30pm – Fireside chat and Q&A with the audience

Trina Spear is a force to be reckoned with and a born leader. Her competitive spirit, fearless leadership style and uncompromising vision transformed FIGS from a small-scale business to a VC-funded startup, equipped with strategy, industry partners and financials that have transformed the healthcare experience. 
Trina began her career in finance and quickly rose to the top on Wall Street in Citigroup’s investment banking and private equity divisions, and then in Blackstone’s hedge fund group. 
A Harvard Business School graduate and Endeavor entrepreneur, Trina’s experience in finance, entrepreneurship and leadership all prepared her to co-found FIGS, securing $75 million in funding – including the latest round of $65 million, which is the fourth largest raise by any female founder in 2017.
The $50 billion medical apparel industry is antiquated, highly fragmented and, until FIGS, was driven solely by low-cost providers offering a limited selection of poor quality products sold through third party distributors. FIGS is revolutionizing the medical apparel industry by creating the highest quality medical apparel in the world and by selling directly to medical professionals through its branded e-commerce site.
FIGS’ foundation is built on product quality, and the company has a relentless focus on three key areas: fabric, fit and function. FIGS developed its proprietary, performance-oriented fabric technology to meet the demands of the medical profession. FIGS’ Technical Collection fabric is antimicrobial, wrinkle resistant, stain and liquid repellant, moisture wicking, odor proof, lightweight, breathable and offers four-way stretch. The company’s designs are tailored, sophisticated and innovative, incorporating features such as yoga waistbands, smart storage (pockets, zippers, hidden pockets) and inspirational sayings inside each garment that appeal to modern healthcare professionals.
