Stitch World - - NEWS -

Ap­parel Ex­port Pro­mo­tion Coun­cil (AEPC), the of­fi­cial body of In­dian ap­parel ex­porters, has set up an incubation cen­tre in Gur­gaon (Haryana) to cater to those in­ter­ested in start­ing and op­er­at­ing a man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity in over­seas mar­kets.

The cen­tre will act as an in­no­va­tion hub and in­for­ma­tion dis­sem­i­na­tion mid­point for the in­no­va­tors and the in­dus­try; thereby, bridg­ing the gap be­tween the two. The AEPC mem­bers will also be able to gain in­for­ma­tion on for­eign mar­kets and ac­cel­er­ate their busi­nesses.

Start-ups will get in touch with in­vestors along­side an ac­cess to work­sta­tions, meet­ing rooms and event space.

The trade as­so­ci­a­tion also signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with 3M to estab­lish a mu­tual col­lab­o­ra­tion that seeks to en­hance the oc­cu­pa­tional safety of work­ers. An agree­ment was also inked with the As­so­ci­a­tion of NIFT Alumni to en­rich the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the fash­ion in­sti­tute and the gar­ment in­dus­try of the coun­try. Ac­cord­ing to AEPC Chair­man, Ashok Ra­jani, the trend fore­cast ser­vice avail­able at the incubation cen­tre will help the ex­porters in get­ting in­sights on fash­ion trends for the com­ing sea­sons. Train­ing and work­shops will also be of­fered to new en­trepreneurs.

Ad­di­tion­ally, start-ups will get an op­por­tu­nity to get in touch with in­vestors through this cen­tre along­side an ac­cess to work­sta­tions, meet­ing rooms and event space.
