As Europe's largest online fashion platform with a vision to connect all players in the fashion business, we want to open up even more to the startup community by doing what we know – encouraging the next generation of fashpreneurs to scale tech in fashion.
There is an ocean of opportunity out there, from the latest developments in AR/VR technology to the new wave of content creators shaking up the brand game. We see the need to inspire, guide, and support entrepreneurs in reimagining fashion with their own business idea, in an effort to go beyond traditional online and app store models.
With this in mind, we’re excited to announce that Zalando will run its first bootcamp dedicated to Fashpreneurs in Berlin from 25-27 November.
Who, What, Why?
If you are a student, graduate, entrepreneur, or a team of forward-thinkers considering (or in the process of) building revolutionary mobile fashion journeys, you’ll definitely want to sign up to this bootcamp experience.
Delivering a product that consumers will love requires some homework. At Zalando’s Bootcamp for Fashpreneurs we’ll be sharing industry insights on new trends, including technology developments in your preferred sphere of influence. We’ll also dive into how you can develop and validate your customer value proposition that goes beyond simple catalogue models.
Our Product, UX, and Business mentors will be on hand to explain why the devil lies in the details of your product offering, as well as help to coach you when assessing your value proposition design skills – very crucial when developing those winning user cases. This event presents a unique chance to meet Berlin’s most imaginative people, prototype your ideas in Zalando’s Innovation Lab, and to share entrepreneurial knowledge with those in the know.
How will it all happen? Over the course of a weekend, you’ll build your team, mingle with industry visionaries, and master your product and pitch. You’ll receive direct expert feedback along the way, giving your product the vision and scope it might need. You’ll be fed, hydrated, and engaged while you received heightened input from experts in the field – an opportunity not to be missed.
How do I sign up?
We’ve got room for 60 keen bootcampers to join us. Head over to this form and briefly tell us about yourself or your team – your interest is important to us, even if you have yet to fully formulate your idea. We’re also happy to take any questions directly in the form linked above.
Sign-up closes on Sunday, 20th November – so make sure you don’t miss out.
