The fashion world is working closely with the biotech industry to accelerate its circular economy ambitions.
And the Fashion for Good (FFG) initiative, headquartered in Amsterdam, is connecting the key players and supporting the innovative businesses contributing to the industry’s sustainability goals.
“Fashion for Good is the global initiative that is here to make all fashion good. We are a global platform for innovation, made possible through collaboration and community. With an open invitation to the entire apparel industry, Fashion for Good convenes brands, producers, retailers, suppliers, non-profit organisations, innovators and funders united in their shared ambition,” FFG told Innovators Magazine.
“ At the core of Fashion for Good is our innovation platform. Through our Fashion for Good-Plug and Play Accelerator, we work with one of the world’s largest technology accelerators to give promising startup innovators the funding and expertise they need in order to grow. Our Scaling Programme supports innovations that have passed the proof-of-concept phase, with a dedicated team that offers bespoke support and access to expertise, customers and capital. Finally, our Good Fashion Fund (in development) will catalyse access to finance where this is required to shift at scale to more sustainable production methods.”
“Through Fashion for Good’s innovation platform, we support startups and companies with the potential to change the fashion industry for good, and we are particularly interested in the biotechnology sphere. If you are an entrepreneur with a relevant, replicable and scalable innovation, please visit our website to learn more about our work and apply for the Fashion for Good-Plug and Play Accelerator if you find there is a fit.”
