Polybion is proud to announce that we were chosen to participate in the Fashion For Good Innovation Programme 2023. We are excited to join twelve other start-ups in this nine-month innovation programme, where we will receive bespoke support to validate our technologies in preparation for implementation across the fashion value chain.
Fashion for Good was established as a global, collaborative innovation platform to tackle the problems faced by the fashion industry. Incremental improvements are not enough to create a truly Good Fashion industry, disruptive innovation is needed. The mission of Fashion for Good is to bring together the entire apparel industry to innovate and collaborate for Good Fashion.
The selected innovators represent technologies across Raw Materials, Processing, Traceability & Transparency, Circular Business Models, and End of Use. The 2023 Innovation Programme provides bespoke support based on each innovator's development stage and ambitions, matching innovators with relevant industry partners to drive validation, implementation, and investing activities.
The program's benefits for selected start-ups include access to a network of fashion industry partners, validation of their technologies, and support to scale their innovations. The programme also contributes to the fashion industry's transition towards a circular economy, which is vital for the planet's sustainability.
Polybion's Co-founder and CFO, Alexis Gómez-Ortigoza, stated, "We are thrilled to have the chance to join Fashion for Good's global initiative and its top-tier industry partners to transform fashion. Sustainability is a team sport."
We at Polybion are excited to participate in the Fashion For Good Innovation Programme 2023 and look forward to contributing to the industry's transformation toward Good Fashion. By collaborating with other innovators and industry partners, we can make a significant positive impact on the planet and create a sustainable future for the fashion industry by making bacterial nanocellulose, a widespread alternative to leather and synthetics.
