THE VFILES LAB 001 COHORT COMPRISES 7 GRANT WINNERS

 

"The 7 selected creators are strong representatives of the VFILES community and the values we stand for. They are exploring projects at the intersection of culture and innovation -- whether through innovative tech or visionary narrative change. Future tech, future fashion, future music -- driven by inclusivity,  storytelling and heart. We see empathy and connection as the building blocks of brand goodwill and success.”

 

“We are listening.Their voices matter. We all know the creative playing field is not level. We aspire to change that.”

 

The VFILES Lab 001 cohort comprises 7 grant winners (including 2 co-founder pairs, thus 9 total individuals) that are all creative entrepreneurs and storytellers - designers, musicians, and creative technologists. VFILES Foundation is the place to discover, collaborate, and create what’s next.
