If you want to efficiently learn how to run an apparel business, make your brand get noticed, avoid costly mistakes, tap into industry experience, and align your business with your highest values, Apparel Entrepreneurship is for you.
Our mission is to help apparel entrepreneurs all over the world, no matter background, launch, run and grow successful and meaningful apparel brands.
Our vision is to reduce the environmental harm in the apparel industry, through education, inspiration, and motivation for better entrepreneurship.
Our goal is to be the number 1 educational source and community for starting, launching and running apparel brands.
The traditional way of learning is by going to school for a few years, earn your diploma, and then start working. This is a great way if you are aiming for a regular employment. But if you want to start your own brand, you will probably lack enough industry experience.
With Apparel Entrepreneurship we approach learning the modern way. It is not a regular school. It is for everyone, all ages, and all backgrounds. You can learn from wherever you are and at any time. It is of course based online, and to the fraction of the price and time of the traditional school.
Apparel Entrepreneurship provides the education and experience, together with hands-on tools and steps to action. The platform gives you the information and tells you HOW to implement it in your business.
You don’t want to make mistakes, costing you a lot of money and wasting your time. Educate yourself on your terms.
