Program Goals

Nest’s Artisan Accelerator is an intensive accelerator program designed to give promising and engaged artisan businesses the support they need to become vital players in the international marketplace for fashion and home design.

360 Degree Programming

Participating accelerator businesses become part of a team of highly motivated like-minded enterprises from around the world, who, under Nest’s direct support, engage in a series of intensive business development programs over the course of a minimum 6-month period.
