The 1st European textile start-up summit bringing together new breed of young textile innovators and start-up entrepreneurs who challenge the incumbents in the long-established industry, is scheduled to begin from April 17. It is a platform to network with textile innovators, technology developers, entrepreneurs, funders and multipliers from across Europe.
The two-day summit in Brussels will open new opportunities for textile-based products and services.

The summit will be hosted by The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing, with logistical support of Euratex–the European Apparel and Textile Confederation.
The event will host panel discussions and seminars on various topics including The brave new world of textile start-ups in Europe, Accelerating textile start-up investments in Europe and Regional start-up communities among others.
