About this event

Michael Chen is the co-founder, CEO, and systems architect of Evolution Design Lab (EDL), a fashion design house. As a software developer, Michael applied the strategies of software and technology into fashion and supply chain. As of today, Michael co-leads EDL in Pasadena with his wife, Jennet, the creative director. The literal and symbolic marriage of these disparate philosophies led to the creation of EDL, a tech company masked in fashion, retail and commerce. https://www.evolutiondesignlab.com

In the past 3 years, EDL has organically grown sales from $15MM to $60+MM dollar company with strategic partnerships with a number of publicly traded retail customers without venture capital or outside financing. The company is currently still growing and looking to expand it's footprint beyond retail.

Prior to the founding EDL, Michael's professional experience included mergers and acquisitions (Bank of America, Wells Fargo), enterprise asset management and licensing (Disney Feature Animation / Pixar).
