New York Fashion Tech Lab is changing its theme for the class of 2016.
The early-stage start-up accelerator, which has already had two incubator programs since its inception in 2014, will help Springboard Enterprises celebrate its 15th birthday by focusing solely on early- and growth-stage, women-led fashion technology firms to join next year’s class. Applications for the class, which it is now accepting, must have at least one woman on the management team with a significant equity stake. Firms could be involved in 3-D printing, business intelligence, fit-tech, geolocation, point of sale and stockkeeping-unit intelligence.
