Reviews

“I had an idea of a brand but needed to understand the entire process, from an idea to launch.

The course really covers it all in a very detailed manner. It’s packed with the most useful information. I have made a lot of progress – created my designs, worked on my business plan, finishing up my website, and working on social media. 

I just have to mention that I learned so much valuable information that even if I worked for years in this industry I would’ve never known about all this information.

From the bottom of my heart thank you! I am so much more prepared going forward!

The Membership helped me learn a lot and it also motivated me to become business-oriented, I finally started thinking like the CEO of my company.”

“Before I took the Apparel Entrepreneurship course there were many aspects to the apparel industry that seemed mysterious and daunting to figure out as a small start-up brand owner.

I knew this course was just what I’d been looking for because it’s so niched down to exactly what needed: how to build an apparel brand and succeed as an entrepreneur in the industry. Most accelerators have a more general focus for a wider audience. The very specific information and individual attention/feedback were exactly what I needed.

I thought, maybe I can get the same insights from google or reading a book. That is definitely not the case and I’m so glad I went for it. 🙂

I also appreciated how much Ana & Klas have put into long-term incredibly valuable content (videos, reading materials, resource lists) that I can continue to reference and have access to.

I’ve made so much progress: I’ve chosen my brand values. Registered for my trademark. Reserved an instagram handle. Worked on material sourcing, gained confidence for my concept, made progress on determining a realistic business model, and have created a detailed mind-map that will serve as an outline for my business plan.

I’d recommend this course right away to anyone who’s seriously exploring apparel entrepreneurship or in the process already. It’s absolutely the most specific, all-encompassing bundle of information/support for doing so, and the instructors are wonderful!

Definitely go for it – it’s absolutely worth the investment!

Thank you so much Ana & Klas for all that you’ve put into creating the ideal course for apparel brand entrepreneurs. There’s nothing else like it out there, and I’m so glad I found you!”

“I can strongly recommend joining the membership. The main reason is that you don’t have to tap in the dark alone, you have people with knowledge and experience to guide you and a lot of help from their downloadables and resources to manage your business – easier and quicker. The tools will help you to get on track and be organized. 

I loved the way Ana and Klas are lecturing and the amount of positive and empowering energy they give you. Also, lectures were precise, very easy to understand, and packed with important information.

What I appreciated the most was that Ana and Klas really think about you, what you do and ask about your progress. You already know you will get the all good stuff with the membership but the fact that they really care about how you’re doing amazes me.

Join the membership, there’s no way you will regret it!”

“You have provided great advice on how to take on market space, find suppliers and manufacturers.  I have also been able to use the calculators to make calculated budget estimations and forecasts for my launch. I now understand that a startup doesn’t have to struggle to make a profit.

A start-up doesn’t have to be a hustle till it magically succeeds, it can be a serious business with good projections for the future – from the very start. In this program, you can actually connect with both industry veterans and newbies who show commitment and inspire you to keep going while studying every face of the business.”

“Since joining the AE membership Program I have been able to find manufacturers, use the calculators to help me understand my pricing and budget, and utilized the social media content plan for my IG page. 

I really enjoy how the 6 step success framework allows me to become more organized when planning my brand and reassures me I’m completing everything that will make my business a success.

Ana & Klas also answer any questions that I had quickly and the weekly live video calls clarified anything I needed help with that week. It’s definitely worth it!”

“The Membership Program has been extremely useful for helping me set long term and short term goals and to really focus on the direction I want my brand to take. It has helped me build up a brand image, get a small team together, and to create a clear business plan. I have also expanded my business process and seen growth on my Instagram following. 

Since joining I have seen my own creativity flourish. 

There are no words to describe how exceptional what you guys are doing is. It’s not just educational, it’s also wellbeing.”

“The amount of resources that are available inside the Apparel Entrepreneurship Membership Program are unbelievable. It’s really helped me think thoroughly about my brand, products, and strategy and how my products can stand out from the crowd. 

When I was trying to Google resources and workshops there wasn’t really anything. The vast amount of downloads, database access, tools, and community help is second to none. It’s just so in-depth! If you are really passionate about building your brand, you need to sign up! Just thank you guys so much for creating this site!”

Carly Hibbins

“I was really impressed with the number of resources offered in terms of how-to guides and tutorials on supporting those starting businesses.

The Membership Program is a great place for those looking to start out in the industry and especially those who might not have worked on product creation before.

Everything was very very well organized, super clear, and up to date. lol surprising, but that isn’t always the case. Ana and Klas clearly go above and beyond to help you succeed. 

This membership has so much to offer for those starting out and makes the material/steps easy to navigate through. 

Definitely take advantage. Great work! Thank Ana and Klas for creating this, not a lot available out there.”

“Before I joined the course I felt very frustrated, unorganized, scattered, and overwhelmed.

After taking the course I am now confident and am turning my dream brand into a reality. 

In the course, you covered things I would have never thought about, especially in the sustainability area.

The biggest benefits for me with the course were:

  1. Knowing the mistakes to avoid when finding and contacting manufacturers.
  2. Gaining an understanding of WHY knowing exactly what your brand’s “WHY” and mission and values are is important in every business, design, and marketing decision you will make.

I strongly recommend the course, it provides an actionable framework for starting a brand. I was pleasantly surprised with the course materials. Having something visual that I can look back on and tweak, is a game-changer in staying on track and organized with where I want to take my brand.

If you are serious about starting a clothing brand, the investment in the course is necessary.

Thank you again for putting the course and the materials together.”
