The Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator has a fellowship program open for its coworking space that’s coming soon to Bed-Stuy’s former Pfizer Building.

The space is supposed to have all kinds of advanced equipment for making clothes and accessories. Plus 3D printers, laser cutters and a limited-run manufacturing capacity.

We wrote about the space in April. It’s for companies that have gotten some traction but are looking to bridge the gap between limited-audience and mass-market scale.

The group is currently looking for its next class of Venture Fellows.

Apply by Oct. 5

Here are the benefits of becoming a fellow, as listed on the BF + DA website:

  • Individual mentorship that combines intensive business development with expert counseling on sustainable strategies
  • A designated studio in our 21,000 SF space in the old Pfizer Labs building at 630 Flushing Avenue in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn
  • Access to shared use public spaces including our 3000 SF plaza, reception, kitchen, conference/classroom, phone booths, etc.
  • A rich community of entrepreneurs and researchers in fashion design, product design and technology, and access to leading industry experts
  • 10% discount on in-house apparel production (cut-and-sew & digital knitting)
  • 15% discount on in-house digital fabrication (3D printing & laser cutting)
  • 50-75% discount on workshops, events and more
