23.10. Growth Day

"There is no higher God in Silicon Valley than growth”. Fashion Tech startups have to grow fast. Being newly founded does not in itself make your startup a company, nor is it necessary for you to work on technology, or take venture funding, or have some sort of "exit strategy". The only essential thing in the early stage is growth. The good news is, if you get growth, everything else tends to fall into place. During the first day we will concentrate on all the aspects of growth for your fashion tech startup. Location: Cocoon Networks London 4 Christopher Street London EC2A 2BS

24.10. Product Day

The MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is great for startups and product teams because it maximises validated learning about customers as quickly as possible. However, it is important to constantly re-evaluate what is the right way to maximise learning while pleasing the customer. While building your fashion tech MVP, your product has to be lovable. People have to want to use or buy it. Products that have less features but are loved, are the most successful. There are many ways to generate love. The current-in-vogue way for fashion tech startups is through great UX and design. On the second day of the bootcamp week we will have talks and workshops on how to build a great product.

25.10. Branding Day

It is particulary important to have branding at the forefront of thinking for a fashion tech startup. Even if your team is small and your product is not yet strong enough to go to market and frankly you need investment in order for the product to go ahead and grow, then branding and branding strategy, even at a basic level will show that you have thought about actual business affairs and the value and growth of your company. That is a much more significant prospect for investors and accelerators to invest in company. That is why we will have a whole day of workshops and presentations about how to build your brand.
