Startup Match Maker
Founders / Advisors / Mentors
Startup founders typically have knowledge in technology; marketing & sales; and or a specific understanding of the target industry. Easier said than done, and when you’re working diligently on the initial minimum viable product (MVP), finding a co-founder and additional professional guidance can seem out of reach.
We want to help remove those barriers for entrepreneurs by making introductions to people interested in becoming a co-founder, advisor or mentor of a fashion startup. Identifying gaps in skillsets and suggesting people who might be a good fit.
How it works and what to expect
Complete the signup form below and you’ll be redirected to the Match Maker Directory.
You’ll receive an email with tips on how to create your profile.
Look through the directory to see if there are people that match your ideal co-founder or advisor.
Let the facilitator know and we can kick start the introduction process.
Have a look through our network for potential matches, then if someone looks suitable, reach out to an IFAB facilitator and we will discuss independently the opportunity further. Our panel of mentors will conduct business analysis and due diligence, then schedule a formal roundtable discussion with everyone involved.
And, remember, this is a very new initiative and we’re here to help facilitate the connection. It’s up to you as the founder or potential co-founder to be honest with what you need and offer a fair and mutually beneficial value exchange. We are currently building the database of candidates, so please submit your interest to be in the mix.
The IFAB Biz Match Maker program is open to fashion and tech startups, so let’s get you matched!
