How it works

Dream Assembly is a 7-week startup accelerator program. We welcome early-stage startups to apply for our program and we choose a small group for each cohort.

If a startup has not been selected for a past cohort, they can still reapply for a future program. Dream Assembly launches two startup accelerator programs per year.

Selected companies are based in Lisbon for the majority of the program, and also travel to our offices in London and Porto for key weeks. During the program, the startups take part in a series of workshops, inspirational talks, mentorship meetings and pitch training sessions. They are also invited to specially curated networking events external to Farfetch, providing opportunities to meet the wider fashion tech community of investors and brands.
