WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?

The fully subsidised programme supports businesses over 6 months and provides regular one-on-one mentoring sessions and experts workshops on:

  • Access to finance and funding
  • Routes to market

A diagnostic review of the business takes place at the start of the season in order to tailor the programme to best suit and benefit the business. This programme runs alongside the Fashion and Jewellery pioneers, thus enable cross pollination of ideas and business interaction.

The programme also gives businesses free access to CFE’s Fash Tech Meetups and other highly sought after networking events in London, as well as discounts and offers from our industry partners, e.g. Amazon Web Services and Zipcar.
