‘The Board’ Program Application Is Now Open
Heritage American tennis brand K•Swiss is partnering with renowned DJ, producer and entrepreneur Diplo to launch ‘The Board’, a game changing campaign built to inspire, and to be led by, the next generation of young entrepreneurs. Appointing Diplo is a nod to the brand’s founders, two entrepreneurs who moved to California in 1966 and built the global brand from a revolutionary tennis shoe, the K•Swiss Classic. Diplo will serve as the Director of a 100-person board comprised of creative and connected individuals who will work on real tasks to bring the K•Swiss brand back to prominence. The application site opened on March 18th with submissions valid through April 30, 2015 at www.kswiss.com/theboard.
“We believe that consumer aspirations have shifted. The goal has evolved beyond being the fastest runner or being a celebrity. Young people want their own brands, their own voice and their own businesses. K•Swiss is committed to outfitting and inspiring this generation of entrepreneurs,” said Barney Waters, chief marketing officer of K•Swiss Global Brands. “We have created a program with substance, where our customers get involved in the process of rebuilding K•Swiss and make real contributions. As a respected entrepreneur and global music talent, Diplo is the perfect leader for ‘The Board’.”
Led by Diplo, successful applicants to ‘The Board’ will be invited to the program’s members-only website with a six-course curriculum connecting the group with industry insiders. Each insider will lead a discussion session specific to their expertise, and then assign a task to the board that relates to K•Swiss’ business. Members of ‘The Board’ will make real decisions on real projects that K•Swiss will follow. The program will highlight important topics, including: brand positioning, sneaker design, social media promotion and drafting a business plan.
