  • FASHION+TECHSF Presents: Mentors & Apprentices. Mentors and Apprentices is a career workshop and a networking event for the fashion, technology and creative industries in the SF Bay Area. Business owners who work in fashion, marketing, technology, art and design related professions introduced their businesses and/or products, explained what they do, discussed their industry challenges and the nature of their internship opportunity, followed by a Q&A session. Mentors then met and interacted with participants and guests. Students and entrepreneurs alike attended this alternative career workshop. Internship opportunity and requirements are determined by each mentor. Resumes recommended. 

FASHION+TECHSF (formerly FashionMashup) is the longest running monthly workshop and event series in the San Francisco Bay Area focused synergistically on building, promoting and educating the vibrant community of fashion and technology entrepreneurs, designers, developers, bloggers, business professionals, students, investors and numerous enthusiastic companies, schools, groups and individuals who share our vision of a world-class fashion and technology industry that is innovative, disruptive and uniquely San Francisco.  

Our mission is to create educational, social and business opportunities for the fashion and technology industries. In the past two years, FASHION+TECHSF has become the leading network for all things fashion and technology in the SF Bay Area.
