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.
