A supportive community for fashion and textile entrepreneurs
WHAT IS UKFT Rise?
UKFT Rise is a network designed to help those in the early stages of building a fashion or textile business.
WHAT DO WE DO?
UKFT Rise hosts regular social events in London and an annual conference to allow individuals to network with peers and share experiences.
The fashion and textile industry is notoriously exclusive and fragmented. While running a start-up can be hugely rewarding, it can also be challenging and lonely.
UKFT Rise exists to help entrepreneurs build a network, share best practices and avoid potential pitfalls, forge relationships with other like-minded companies and even meet potential customers or partners.
UKFT Rise provides the inspiration and community to help new businesses flourish.
