Reimagine Textile is a strategy promoted by Mataró City Council and co-led by TecnoCampus and the Eurecat Technology Center. Its mission is to restore the competitiveness of Catalan textiles in front of Europe and the world, promoting innovation, sustainability and new digital business models, while creating an internationally recognized Hub that generates wealth in the territory.
We want to be a reference for the textile industry, especially that dedicated to the fashion, health and sports sectors, in terms of technological innovation and business model, encouraging companies to re-imagine themselves, while working on their transformation and adapting to current and future challenges.
Reimagine Textile is committed to the competitive improvement of companies, and the positive impact this has on society, thus promoting the re-industrialization of the sector and the territories where it has a greater presence, starting with Maresme and Catalonia.
It is a high-performance program that accompanies the process of transforming business ideas from the textile and fashion sector into real business projects.
This program is aimed at entrepreneurs or start-ups (up to 5 years old) in the textile sector who are committed to innovation, sustainability or circularity as a competitive advantage in their business model.
Each year, 15 projects are selected that incorporate smart, functional and sustainable fabrics, eco design, wearables, innovative materials, circular textile economy, digitization of processes, 3D printing, disruptive brands or other innovative elements for the textile industry.
It is a short-term program aimed at entrepreneurs with a project in the textile-fashion sector that helps to create, validate and plan a textile business model. It consists of 4 sessions on Monday mornings between October and November. You then receive one-on-one mentoring to review the executive summary.
