Mentorship Hub

Mentorship Hub

At Decoded Fashion Summits, tech founders have access to top industry experts for candid feedback and advice.

 

Decoded Fashion’s Mentorship Hub connects fashion executives and influencers with talented entrepreneurs looking for advice. These meetings have helped hundreds of startups and even resulted in a number of exciting collaborations between the brands, retailers and new startups.

 

The Decoded Fashion Mentorship Hub is a key element of the Summit series, now present in London, New York, Milan and at our pop up event during South by Southwest in Austin. The hub gives attendees access to inspirational, world-class fashion, retail and tech mentors, and the opportunity to build relationships with central figures from across the industry.

 

“Decoded events are by far my favorite. We always have great success meeting amazing startups through you. We are in pilot with Tulip retail and worked with Pixlee for our app UGC. ” - Coach

How does it work?

Over the two day summit, over 150 meetings will take place, giving startups, entrepreneurs and retail innovators the opportunity to sign up for a limited number of face-to-face meetings with various executives from across the Fashion, Retail and Tech industry.

 

Each mentor will offer 10-minute sessions and provide candid feedback and advice to help move your company forward. For mentees these meetings are a unique opportunity to explore your messaging, value prop and even pricing with those who truly understand your target market. For mentors, it is a chance to find new talent, new partners and ideas that could innovate the industry.

 

“The Mentorship Hub meetings were helpful with specific questions I had about my fashion start up, such as how to approach brands, and I also made some good contacts.The idea of the mentorship hub was excellent as it gave me instant access to people who are at the top of their game and have an overview of the fashion industry.”
