(AMSTERDAM)

The fashion industry needs creative innovators to mainstream products and business models that can give it a sustainable future.

Startups striving to do this have a chance to take their ideas to the next level by joining the Fashion for Good – Plug and Play Accelerator.

Fashion for Good is a pioneering global initiative leading the redesign of an industry which, like most others, needs to replace practices that are detrimental to the planet with systems that are sustainable. While Silicon Valley’s Plug and Play is the world’s largest startup accelerator platform.

The pair are running this platform to provide early-stage companies with the investment and networking opportunities they need to make their visions for the industry a reality.

Ten startups will be selected for the 12-week programme in Amsterdam, which is held bi-annually. And the closing date to apply for the next round is 13 December.
