What They Say About Us

"It has been a great experience, we got several accomplishments, such us establishing a brand equity, we were not sure how to do that and we got it through through FTA expertise. I would recommend this program to other fashion tech startups.

"While our company was already generating revenues, we lacked the internal resources to study our business in-depth. After the acceleration program, we found out new solutions to approach the market and maximize our digital presence, increasing revenues in the process"
