We believe collaboration is crucial to accelerate change within the fashion industry – to be able to move beyond incremental improvements and catalyse true transformation, we need innovators to work with key market actors and the entire ecosystem to work together.
By facilitating access to these brands, manufacturers and retailers, we give relevant, replicable and scalable innovations the chance to hone their product-market fit so they have the best possible chance of success. We’ve worked closely with Plug and Play since the inception of our Accelerator Programme, who assist on pipeline collaboration, innovator support, investment opportunities, network access, and key events.
There is a two way learning. We benefit from learning about their technologies and how to use them in our business, but we can also offer to the startups ideas on how to be smarter in their approaches to business” Helen Crowley Kering
