THE FASHION ENTREPRENEUR FUND

The Fashion Entrepreneur Fund is working as a venture studio. Originating from a cause-driven initiative, our purpose is to provide support to fashion and lifestyle individuals. Our innovative business model merges funding and mentorship acting as a driving force for budding entrepreneurs. At the core of it, the Fashion Entrepreneur Fund serves as a platform by FEF India Fashion Awards that contribute to employment opportunities and our country’s overall GDP growth.

THE FASHION REVOLUTION BEGINS

The idea for FEF came to life during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic when government support was extended to various sectors. Unfortunately, fashion and lifestyle industry was not a priority area for them and got overlooked. Those working in this vast industry suffered a big blow. Evidently, there was a need for a platform that could empower aspiring individuals in the fashion & lifestyle industry who lacked the resources to pursue their dreams. The founding team of FEF then decided to come together and make a difference.

TOGETHER, WE CREATE AN ECOSYSTEM

This funding platform, supported by esteemed business moguls like Ravi Jaipuria, Naveen Jindal, Karan Johar, Vinod Dugar, Samir Modi, Sandeep Jain and Robin Raina, will invest more than Rs. 20 Crores in fashion and lifestyle-based businesses and startups. Through this initiative, Mr Nigam, our founder, aims to support the growth and success of the entire fashion ecosystem.
