African Designer Accelerator
The EFI Accelerator Programme for African designers targets existing fashion brands producing in Africa who require additional support in accelerating their businesses in the global marketplace. Two brands from the Accelerator have been selected to join the EFI Innovation Lab, where they will undergo a tailored mentoring programme in every aspect of the business of fashion.
Our 2020 Hackathon, which you can read about in full here, resulted in 30 ideas that addressed major challenges in the fashion industry. Out of the range of fantastic ideas, 3 proposals have been selected by a committee and are now participating in the EFI Innovation Lab to support them in their journey of disrupting the fashion industry.
