WHY JOIN SOURCE AS A SMALL BUSINESS OR ENTREPRENEUR?

1. PROMOTION

The SOURCE media platform reaches thousands of fashion professionals dedicated to sustainable sourcing, through multiple channels. SOURCE members benefit from the opportunity to be promoted through all our channels including SOURCE Bulletins, Network, Database, Intelligence, Facebook and Twitter.

All SOURCE subscribers who are also members of the Fellowship 500 benefit from a dedicated broadcast, presenting their initiative to over 6000 industry professionals including hundreds of press, buyers, as well as promotion through SOURCE Database, SOURCE promotional materials, and events.

2. CONNECT WITH BUYERS AND PRESS

  • List your business on SOURCE Database, the most comprehensive global online directory for buyers looking to source sustainable fashion products.
  • Take part in the SOURCE Designer preview, held ONLINE, annually in January. Get your products in front of buyers and press before any of the mainstream tradeshows, and reach a truly global audience, with none of the costs associated with a traditional trade show format.
  • Be included in the SOURCE Brand Directory, the definitive annual guide to sustainable brands and designers, updated annually in January and distributed widely in PDF and print format throughout all SOURCE and SOURCE partners events for one year.

Please note that all businesses promoted through SOURCE Listings and Brand Preview are subject to review against EFF’s Ethical Mandate

3. CONNECT WITH SUPPLIERS– GET YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN RIGHT

Detailed information on sustainable suppliers at your fingertips through full access to the SOURCING DIRECTORY on SOURCE Database. We have compiled reports on suppliers listed- including, in most cases, prices, lead in time, minimum and maximum order quantities and more. All suppliers listed are reviewed against the EFF’s Ethical Mandate.

Make use of our Sourcing resources: Handy matrixes compiling key information and suppliers you can connect with in different parts of the world. Need to know the latest on sustainable fibre and fabric options? Find it HERE

4. MEET PIONEERS AND INNOVATORS: JOIN A GLOBAL MOVEMENT

Subscribers benefit from the opportunity to attend the annual SOURCE Summit, online or in person, which brings together hundreds of industry leaders, innovators and pioneers from all over the world, and every part of the supply chain.

5. GET IT RIGHT FIRST TIME: SOURCE INTELLIGENCE Make informed decisions, get your products right, and grow your sales

Subscribers benefit from full access to SOURCE Intelligence, including hundreds of reports, training materials, market updates, and resources, put together by our research team and over 30 contributors world wide, to help you to make the right business decisions and grow your success against a triple bottom line. The majority of content is accessible to subscribers / fellows only.

SOURCE is a not for profit initiative: it has been created to save users time and money. Subscription fees are kept to an absolute minimum, and are a fraction of the value offered through the SOURCE platform. SOURCE Intelligence alone compiles resources worth over £20,000 at standard industry rates.

We know from experience with hundreds of businesses that lack of information, uninformed decisions and limited contacts and connections cost them large sums of money, and, often, the success of their business ventures. SOURCE is designed as a toolkit to avoid this.
