About the Accelerator
The future of fashion is in our hands. The market is constantly changing, and the only way to see a bright future is by building it from now, together. Innovation is the new power. Disruption, flexibility and the ability to learn fast are the new solutions for any company that wants to be relevant in the fashion market for the next years.
We need innovators, and we are going to support them and their startups with our FashionTech program in Milan, for which the applications will close the 11th of November, to spread the FashionTech ecosystem around the Globe!
During our intense 3-month accelerator program, up to 10 carefully selected startups will collaborate with 150+ mentors, partners and investors to build world-class products, services and business. Their ultimate goal is becoming industry-leading FashionTech companies of the future. At the end of the program, all startups will pitch their innovative ideas in front of hundreds of investors, partners and mentors on our grand finale: Demo Day.
To meet ambitious entrepreneurs from all over the world, CEO Alceo Rapagna and the Managing Directors Nazzareno Mengoni and Stefano Galassi of Startupbootcamp FashionTech Milan, will run an International FastTrack Tour. This tour includes some of the most vibrant startup cities, like Amsterdam, London, New York, Berlin, Paris, Tel Aviv, Lisbon, Shanghai, and so on. In all these cities, Startupbootcamp will host a FastTrack event where local startups will be able to present their idea, receive one-on-one feedback, learn about the program, and network with fellow entrepreneurs from the local ecosystems. If traveling is not an option, the startups can also join one of the online events called Startupbootcamp Connect. Contact us for more info!
