The Seattle Fashion Incubator and Entrepreneurship Innovation Institute at Cornell University have formed a strategic alliance to support start-ups in Seattle’s apparel industry.
 
Seattle Fashion Incubator (SFI) and the Entrepreneurship Innovation Institute (EII) at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University are excited to announce the formation of their strategic alliance to support start-up fashion and apparel businesses in the region. 
 
As a part of this strategic alliance members of SFI will be provided the opportunity to submit projects for EII to vet with Johnson MBA students for the opportunity to receive much needed services such as analyses, consulting, customer validation and engagement, financial modeling, and business or market planning.
 
“Through this strategic alliance, Johnson MBA students will gain direct experience in dealing with the range of challenges that innovative apparel startups face, and in turn, these SFI companies will gain access to the professional marketing, financial, and planning services they need and seek,” said Rhett L. Weiss, executive director of the Entrepreneurship Innovation Institute at Johnson at Cornell University
 
These services will supplement SFI’s existing advisory services with additional entrepreneurship minded advisors affiliated with EII. Thus furthering the development and growth that will help keep and attract fashion and apparel businesses in Seattle. Learn more about SFI’s work by visiting www.seattlefashionincubator.org.
