Fabrica is the innovation arm of The Mills – dedicated to creating techstyle startup success stories and building a global techstyle community. We are an open platform for innovation, facilitating collaboration between startups, brands, retailers, manufacturers, academic and research institutions and more.
We run a cross-border incubation programme both in Hong Kong and the UK, bridging the east and the west to support techstyle startups through exposure, connections and advisory. This provides startups access to our global network no matter where they are in the world.
We also have an investment fund that supports and invests in techstyle globally.
Our flexible co-working space provides members with the space to create and share ideas with like-minded entrepreneurs, whilst Fabrica Lab allows for experimentation and prototyping in a collaborative environment with state-of-the-art machinery and equipment. Techstyle X is our very own store located on The Mills Shopfloor which is dedicated to showcasing the latest techstyle innovations to the public.
We also host a variety of events for the community from large conferences and exhibitions to smaller, more intimate symposiums and workshops. And Fabrica.Weave, our quarterly magazine, is designed to inform, educate and inspire our followers and share about the latest techstyle news.
