Farfetch to mentor start-ups


Named Dream Assembly, the technology accelerator powered by Farfetch, aims to give selected start-ups the opportunity to join a programme of mentorship and networking. Access to early-stage funding also included

The Dream Assembly program will be based out of Farfetch’s offices in Lisbon and will include a series of workshops, one-to-one sessions with senior leaders within Farfetch and mentorship meetings. Topics covered will range from e-commerce, marketing, technology, fashion to logistics and operations. Networking opportunities for the participating start-ups will be another key element of the programme.

Twice a year, applications will be open for up to 10 startups to join the 12-week Dream Assembly program. Participating startups will move to Lisbon (where the program is based) with some weeks in London and San Francisco, during which they’ll take part in a structured course of workshops, inspirational talks, mentor meetings and external networking opportunities, by contacting with relevant industry leaders.

As part of Dream Assembly, startups will receive 30 000 euros in funding from Farfetch.

Each cycle ends with two Demo Days (Lisbon and London), where participants can pitch their business to a selected pool of external investors for follow-on funding.

British-based fashion house Burberry is the first brand to partner with Farfetch to provide modules for the Dream Assembly programme.
