GCA Impact Accelerator week

Five disruptive innovations have been chosen, announced to the world, and awarded a shared grant of 1 million euro. Now, it is time for the winning teams to meet each other in real for the first time for an intensive week in Stockholm. On 13 June, new and previous winners come together at the H&M Foundation headquarters to kickstart the GCA Impact Accelerator bootcamp week.

It’s a week to connect, collaborate, and showcase each innovation to stakeholders in the fashion industry. What’s more, the innovators are coached and guided on topics ranging from innovation readiness to impact leadership to media training by industry experts, business leaders, and members of the GCA alumni.

The H&M Foundation heads the GCA Impact Accelerator together with our core partners KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Accenture and The Mills Fabrica. During the Accelerator week, we are also joined by experts from Re:humanize Institute, The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA), H&M Group, Renewcell and more to support and enable each innovation to go from lab to launch at speed.

Stay tuned for more news about the GCA Impact Accelerator.
