FASHION YOUR FUTURE

 

SOLD OUT! Thanks for your interest but due to overwhelming demand, we are now SOLD OUT.

The Toronto Fashion Incubator is excited to announce the return of its popular start-up bootcamp, Fashion Your Future. This is a 4-week Virtual Pop-Up Fashion Entrepreneurship Bootcamp running from November 15th to December 8th, 2021.

The program is for Indigenous, Black and equity-deserving individuals who live in Toronto's Neighbourhood Improvement Areas and is open to start-up entrepreneurs of any age. Participants will be provided with virtual part-time instruction by industry experts, two hours per day, 2 days per week, for 4 weeks. The course will cover topics such as:
  • Intro to Fashion Entrepreneurship
  • What Buyers and Consumers Want
  • Market Research
  • Branding
  • Costing
  • How to Sell
  • Marketing, PR & Social Media
  • Business Plan Overview
Here is the program schedule:

Participants will get 1:1 and group mentoring, networking opportunities, and access to TFI resources that will support them to establish a new fashion business. Upon successful completion of the program, and based on attendance and assignment scores (there will be 3 assignments due), the top 20 achievers will be awarded a micro-grant to offset some costs of starting their new fashion business, and a free one-year TFI Outreach membership (value $140) which will entitle them to post-program support as they launch their new enterprise. The TFI membership includes 120 complimentary minutes of one-on-one mentoring time, valued at $550+. The value of this package is almost $800, in return for a $25 participation fee.  

Classes run Mondays and Wednesdays
From 7:00 to 9:00 pm ET
As capacity is limited, priority will be granted to Indigenous, Black and equity-deserving individuals including youth (up to age 29), women, LGBTQ2S and other visible minorities living in Toronto.

This program is generously sponsored by the City of Toronto.
