Named ‘Dream Assembly’, the technology accelerator aims to provide start-ups with a programme of mentorship, networking opportunities and access to early-stage funding.

Based in Lisbon, Portugal, the Dream Assembly 12-week programme will include a series of workshops, one-to-one sessions with senior leaders within Farfetch, and mentorship meetings covering topics such as e-commerce, marketing, technology, fashion, logistics and operations, as well as networking opportunities for the participating start-ups.

British fashion house Burberry is the first brand to partner with Farfetch to provide modules for the Dream Assembly programme. Global venture capital firm, 500 Startups, which is reported to have mentored and coached thousands of entrepreneurs through their Silicon Valley based ‘Seed Accelerator program’, will also provide sales and marketing expertise for Dream Assembly companies.

Applications to join Farfetch Dream Assembly’s first session are now open until June 10, 2018.
