  10. 11. <ul><li>John's mother also helped her son launch his company by mortgaging her house for the $100,000 in start-up capital. Even more amazingly, she then moved out so that the quartet could use it as a makeshift factory and office space. As a company, FUBU officially emerged in 1994, when John and his partners traveled to an industry trade show in Las Vegas. They could not afford a booth to display their wares, so they rented a room in a posh hotel and passed out invitations. This risky strategy worked. Buyers liked the distinctively cut, vibrantly colored FUBU gear, and John and his partners returned to Queens with orders for $300,000 worth of merchandise. </li></ul><ul><li>Watch video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79a3nTDmeNo </li></ul>
