Start-Up Hub

We invite trailblazers and disruptors to join us in the Drapers Disrupt Hub to showcase their innovations, meet investors and take part in a live competition on the main stage. Drapers Disrupt is for companies under five years as of 1 January 2019, who are beyond the proof-of-concept stage and ready to scale up. You will be fully operational and able to take on a range of clients of differing sizes.

Only eight places are available in the Drapers Disrupt Hub, and they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. 

We are looking for innovations in any of the following areas:

  • Technologies that make product provenance and journey more transparent
  • Processing techniques that reduce water, energy and waste
  • Recycling techniques and circular fashion
  • Sustainable fabrics and fibres
  • Sustainable packaging
  • Prolonging garment lifespan, reuse and second life
  • Business models that support sustainable and ethical fashion
  • Tools that engage with farmers, growers and local communities 

The entry fee of £1500 includes: 

  • A demo pod in the Drapers Disrupt Hub
  • Taking part in Drapers’ Den -  a live-judged completion for best start-up on the main stage. The winner is voted for by the audience and given ample coverage in Drapers. 
  • 2 passes for the event and all associated functions
  • Your endorsements on the website and marketing material
