FABB

THE SUSTAINABLE FASHION ACCELERATOR

Sustainable fashion is the new normal. Are you a front-runner for a sustainable fashion sector? Join our Fashion Accelerator for Better Business (FABB), which is there to help sustainable fashion startups forward.

Now especially, you will be facing challenges that are hard to solve on your own. FABB offers a program of expert guidance, one-on-one coaching, and peer-to-peer learning in a small group of like-minded entrepreneurs. In three months, you will work on your needs in the areas of marketing & positioning, sales, operations, finance, and production. As it stands, the program is fully designed for online delivery. Corona measures permitting, we may organise additional program events in both Amsterdam and Vienna. Overcome your
challenges and move your business forward!
