Founded by Annick Jehanne and Alain Boge, HUBMODE is the first company to offer professional training to European fashion and textile companies in the form of MOOC (massive open online course). Accredited training organization, its mission is to train employees and self-employed workers to enable them to acquire all the necessary skills to adapt to the current context and to meet the major economic, social and environmental issues of the textile industry. It relies on a collaborative network of 30 experienced experts in all the fashion trades. One of its main objectives is to make quality training accessible to all, from large groups to small businesses, independent creators and retraining people.

Anchored in the Social and Solidarity Economy by the missions it carries and the values it defends, HUBMODE, which now has 37 members, has chosen to redistribute its profits in training sponsorship. Several MOOCs are offered free of charge. Partner of UAMEP label on access to training, an eco-design project is currently being prepared around the central issue: “how to ensure security, trust and traceability in the world of fashion while building on a viable and sustainable business model ?”

The MOOCs offered by HUBMODE thus constitute a real lever of change for the fashion and textile sector, which, in order to evolve towards a more responsible paradigm, urgently needs agile training for all of its players and at all levels of the industry’s value chain. Faced with these challenges, HUBMODE now wants to strengthen its equity by integrating new members and has launched a crowdfunding campaign on the Spark Up platform, offering equity investments from 100 euros. Proof that sustainable investment, like training, can also be accessible and innovative.
