“Sisters, not twins.”
That’s what I told my web designer when we first started talking about the branding and design for The Crowdfunding Factory.
I said it needed to be clear that The Crowdfunding Factory was not the same as Factory45, but more like its little sister…
And that’s when we became two normal people talking about websites as if they were humans.
But in all seriousness, I know there might be some confusion about how The Crowdfunding Factory is different from Factory45 and today I want to get really clear on that.
Factory45 is a six-month online accelerator program that takes sustainable apparel companies from idea to launch — including sourcing, pre-production, manufacturing, marketing, selling and crowdfunding.
Applications only open once per year so I can work closely with one dedicated cohort of entrepreneurs at a time.
There is 1-on-1 support, group calls and a community element that creates an exclusive experience for those people who want to build their companies in a sustainable and ethical way.
The tuition for Factory45 is $500/month for six months, and I can be as involved in helping you build your business as you want me to be.
The Crowdfunding Factory is a new course I just launched last week that acts as a stepping stone to Factory45. It’s for the people who are eager to join Factory45, but they don’t want to wait until the spring to get started on planning their launch.
As you’ll learn in my courses, a detailed marketing strategy that takes you to pre-selling on Kickstarter are the two main pillars of a successful fashion brand launch.
When you begin your launch strategy with The Crowdfunding Factory, you’re getting a huge head start on creating a campaign that will ultimately fuel every other aspect of your business.
And the best part? Come spring, when you’re ready to join Factory45, you’ll have a marketing strategy in place that you’re ready to implement.
Which of course, means that you’ll have more time and energy to devote to sourcing the perfect materials and working on product development.
So, that just about sums it up.
- If you plan to join Factory45 in the spring, then The Crowdfunding Factory is for you — and you’ll receive $500 off your Factory45 tuition, which is one month free.
- If you already have your samples and manufacturing lined up, then The Crowdfunding Factory is also for you. It’s the next best step to taking your brand from pre-production to pre-sales.
- And if you simply know that you would eventually like to launch or grow your clothing company through pre-sales, then TCF is for you too. There’s also a money-back guarantee if you don’t reach your goal.
My intention with all of this is to set you up with several different ways to be successful.
Enrollment is open here and it closes on Wednesday, February 15 at midnight EST.
