Join us for a 30-minute discussion with the innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists who help shape our graduate programs. You’ll hear some great D’Amore-McKim graduate student and alumni stories about their entrepreneurial efforts as part of the D’Amore-McKim Graduate Programs’ inaugural Innovation Spotlight Series.
Patrick Félix was living the fashion district of Paris, when he was influenced by the unique fashion styles that people in the neighborhood carried with them in their everyday lives. Three years later, while a graduate student in the Master’s in Innovation program at Northeastern, Patrick created the brand Sek-sē (sexy,) a lifestyle streetwear brand for men and women that makes you feel good.
Having previously created a social network called tBubble, Patrick had planned to leverage his Master’s in Innovation degree to create a technology company. Instead, it gave him the spark that brought him back to what he truly always felt attached to: fashion.
Today, Patrick will share his journey as an entrepreneur and how the twists and turns in his career and life have allowed him to travel the world and do things that he once thought would only be dreams.
Patrick Félix is the founder of Sek-sē, Inc., a fashion lifestyle brand that he created in 2014 while attending Northeastern University D’Amore-Mckim School of Business. He is also a Global Finance Manager for a Silicon Valley startup. Previously, he served for eight years as the President of Cultural and Economic Development of the Felix Brothers Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization committed to helping the future growth of Haiti.
Patrick graduated from Providence College with a Bachelor’s in Philosophy and English. He earned a MA in Philosophy from the San Jose State University and an MS in Innovation from Northeastern University.
