TCBL is currently running six Business Pilots. These are innovative business operations that receive support from the project in order to determine scaleable practises.
Business Model Innovation
Business pilots are chosen from projects proposed by TCBL Associates, businesses and enterprises, large and small – even individuals – in any way connected with design, production, manufacturing and distribution in the Textiles and Clothing (T&C) sector, who are interested in innovating business systems to build a more inclusive, sustainable and prosperous production ecosystem in Europe and throughout the world.
Over 225 TCBL Associates were selected the first three yearly Calls for Expression of Interest from 2016 to 2018 (we have now adopted a rolling procedure; click here to apply). All applications were and are evaluated based on the coherence of their business ideas with the seven TCBL Principles together with the degree of their commitment towards innovating together for a sustainable future.
TCBL Associates thus make up a value-based business community of forward-looking enterprises under the TCBL label. As a closed user group, they gain privileged access to on-going Business Cases experimenting new value chains with other TCBL Associates as well as to the different Business Services on the TCBL Open Platform.
