About the FABRIC Apparel Entrepreneur Scholarship

Our mission is to provide apparel entrepreneurs with training, guidance, innovative industry resources, and access to no-minimum manufacturing, so they can build sustainable fashion businesses domestically.

One way we do this is by providing access to a digital roadmap that guides apparel entrepreneurs through the hundreds of steps in business startup, branding, marketing, design development, and manufacturing and prepares/guides them through no-minimum manufacturing. Then we provide scholarships into this roadmap to select disadvantaged entrepreneurs.

First, find out if FABRIC's Apparel Entrepreneur Membership Roadmap is right for you by taking a virtual tour. (Required)
