Startup Mentoring and FASHIONbasecamp

Fashion entrepreneurs, guided to greatness

Startup Mentoring & FASHIONbasecamp

Product Design and Development Consultancy

When we were invited to put together mentoring programmes for Fashion startups after the financial crisis almost 10 years ago it started a new chapter in our business.

Since then we have mentored startups through many stages of their development. Many of these have managed to establish their business both in the UK and in other countries. Some have even been part of London Fashion Week in the first year of their existence.

We started our FASHIONbasecamp programme in addition to that. This programme consists of events, webinars, group mentoring sessions and collaborations. We are currently working on a revised FASHIONbasecamp offering, so keep an eye on this page if you are interested in becoming part of a unique fashion startup stimulation programme.

Startup mentoring at Conceptable is unlike any other experience you will have had as a starting fashion entrepreneur. The experience and contacts we make available to our mentees are second to none.

If you are interested in making use of mentoring sessions part of your development, we invite you contact us.

Not everyone needs the same approach

Mentoring can help your business

You may be considering to work with a mentor or coach for yourself instead it might be for one of your key staff members. Either way, there are a few different approaches outlined below which might help you to decide how to start.

Single Session

A single session is usually a good way to address one or two specific points that need a decision from the mentee.

In this case a session is usually 90 minutes and has as the goal to give the mentee the insight and confidence to make the decisions or take the actions needed to progress.

Series of Sessions

Mentees often opt for longer term guidance. There is a good reason for that. Businesses evolve and the people we mentor play a role in that evolution. Typically we start the journey with 90 minute sessions every 3-6 weeks, which can go down to 60 minute sessions as time progresses.

Sometimes an intense start is needed. We look at that together and may decide to do sessions more frequently.

Group Mentoring

Group mentoring workshops are ideal if you are looking for the guidance of a team. This could be on a specific topic that will benefit their development or to help them prepare for upcoming changes for instance.

Workshops by Conceptable specialists can be run on-site, in our office or online.
