Twelve start-ups have become part of the Accelerator Programme that has been designed to help innovative technologies and business models with the greatest potential to reshape the fashion industry for good. This involves a 12-week curriculum, including mentorship from corporate partners Adidas, C&A, Galeries Lafayette, Kering, PVH Corp, Target and Zalando.

These start-ups will be supported by the Fashion for Good-Plug and Play Accelerator. The technologies being supported include bio based dyes and fibres made from banana and software developed specifically for closet management

Fashion for Good was launched in 2017 and is supported by C&A Foundation as a founding partner. The Accelerator Programme is part of Fashion for Good’s Innovation Platform, which also includes a Scaling Programme and the Good Fashion Fund. The Fashion for Good-Plug and Play Accelerator is run in collaboration with Plug and Play – the most active early-stage investor globally – and corporate partners adidas, C&A, Galeries Lafayette, Kering, PVH Corp, Target and Zalando. Together they are championing the replicable and scalable innovations that will accelerate the transition to a circular fashion industry.

The twelve startups partaking in Batch 4 have been carefully selected out of hundreds of applicants and come from all over the world covering three continents and eight nationalities. They represent varied supply chain areas with in this batch a specific focus on new business models. During the next twelve weeks, the Accelerator’s partners and mentors will drive market validation of the innovators’ technologies, to prime them for implementation at scale.

The selected start-ups for the fourth edition of the Fashion for Good-Plug and Play Accelerator Programme are: &Wider, Algalife, The Excess Materials Exchange (EME), Gibbon, Green Whisper, Nowner, Reflaunt, reGAIN app, Save Your Wardrobe, Stuffstr, TrusTrace and the Vienna Textile Lab. (SV)
