For the past five years, the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Design Entrepreneurs has been helping up-and-coming fashion designers create the businesses of their dreams, from teaching them strategy, branding and financials and setting them up with industry mentors to giving them the chance to win $50,000 to $100,000 for their young companies.

Now, FIT’s “mini MBA” program is going one step further with the official launch of the Design Entrepreneurs Collaborative, a 5,400-square-foot workspace in the center of New York City’s Garment District. The space gives alums of both FIT and the Design Entrepreneurs program the chance to operate out of an affordable space, meet with potential buyers and retailers and hold mini-marts during fashion market weeks.
