Designed to help develop new and emerging fashion businesses, this unique 10 month accelerator programme is open to a maximum of 12 companies, who have been trading for at least one year.
The programme will support you in defining your brand strategy, make sure you are working to the best business model to deliver long term growth, and provide you with a network of industry contacts for you to nurture.
The accelerator programme is broken down into four London based workshops over the ten months, interspersed with monthly one to one consultancies delivered face to face or via Skype / FaceTime (depending on location) in order for you to maintain a consistent level of mentoring from your consultancy team.
Leading the programme are Fashion Business Consultant Toby Meadows, Author of How to Set Up and Run a Fashion Label and Creative Brand Consultant Sanjeev Davidson. Alongside one to one mentorship with these two industry experts you will throughout the programme be personally introduced to an experienced network of industry professionals so you can broaden your contacts list and gain fresh up to date insights into the current fashion market.
Toby Meadows says, “We’ve purposefully kept the programme very limited in numbers and have designed it in such a way as to give participants ongoing mentorship that fits in with the hectic schedule of running their business. We totally appreciate the struggles and needs of new and emerging labels and are totally focused on driving a results based bespoke programme through personal face to face interaction.”
The programme starts with a two week workshop in London in February, but all further workshops will be one week long. Please see below for actual dates.
