Our mission is, and always has been, to discover, educate, and empower the next generation.
As a part of that mission, we are announcing the VFILES₅₀₁c₃ LAB.
The VFILES Foundation’s incubation program, VFILES Lab, is a non-profit incubator established to discover, educate, and empower Original Thinkers. We are going to help monetize your biggest dreams and ideas and refine them into commercial products and businesses. These incubated ideas will then be launched on a global stage - a la VFILES RUNWAY - to potential investors, employers, collaborators, and press.
The selected Lab Members will each receive a $10,000 grant, join our 10 week online incubation program with handpicked world-class mentors and speakers, and a slot at our first VFILES LAB runway show in March 2021.
Applicants with original ideas can come from all creative and intellectual pillars: fashion, music, design, technology, art, film, animation, gaming, VR/AR, sustainability, social justice - you name it. If you have the idea, we have your professors, mentors, and investors. Together, we have the energy.
With VFILES RUNWAY, we empowered countless creatives and propelled them into the universe. As a Foundation, the VFILES LAB will provide grants, mentorship, and access to networks to help bring your biggest ideas to life. For you. You own 100% of your work. We are simply here to accelerate your success.
You are tomorrow’s talent, today.
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
