Calling all dreamers: Fashion Angel is here!
We all have dreams; whether it’s travelling the world, marrying a billionaire, or becoming famous – some dreams are more realistic than others. Most dreams however require a nice amount of money; either a generous sponsor or money carefully saved up.
Things can be different though. With tough competition in the fashion world, there is new hope for those aspiring designers. Fashion Angel helps young fashion entrepreneurs fly with funding and FREE business mentoring.
Does it sound too good to be true? Fashion Angel has partnered with the government, offering a Start-Up Loans Company, to offer straightforward access to loans and business support for aspiring fashion industry entrepreneurs.
In Fashion Angel’s founder, Alison Lewy’s owns words: “We are delighted that we can help fashion start-ups get funding and business mentoring to help make their dream business a reality. Traditional lenders are often unsympathetic to lending to creative businesses, so it’s exciting to be able to offer an alternative funding route. As the only delivery partners specialising in this area, we are looking forward to playing an integral part to the success of these young entrepreneurs”.
The chairman of Start-Up Loans Company, Dragons’ Den’s, James Caan said: “Having started my first business in the fashion industry, I’m delighted to see a fashion-specific Partner on board to help support creative entrepreneurs turn their passion into a business. I believe this surge we are seeing from young people starting their own businesses is simply the beginning of an emerging and lasting trend in entrepreneurship in Britain. Start-Up Loans are unsecured which is exactly what young people with no track-record of business or collateral need to get their idea off the ground”.
Fashion Angel can assist anyone with a new label, innovative idea, product or service in the fashion, accessory, shoe and jewellery fields. They give access to one-to-one mentoring, group training, networking and funding to both emerging and established fashion industry entrepreneurs.
Start-Up Loans has a budget of £112 million, to be used by 2015, to sponsor young entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 to 30 in England to launch a business.
On 26th March 2013 Fashion Angel will be holding a FREE talk and networking event – Finance for Fashion Start Ups in London, where successful Start-Up Loan Ambassadors and loan recipients will be present to share their experiences.
Fashion Angel is committed to giving fashion brands the guidance and entrepreneurial skills they need to be successful. So take that leap and believe in your dreams!
