Topshop Top Pitch shows the entrepreneurial direction many big brands are currently embracing -- or at the very least wanting to embrace. Although not necessarily entrepreneurial itself, this program is meant to foster such progression in a way that will benefit the company in the long run. Through Topshop Top Pitch, people will be able to find mentors and development programs to help expand their ideas.

Focusing on wearable tech and smart fashion, the Topshop Top Pitch program will revolve around a four-week bootcamp in central London, England. Sheena Sauvaire, the retailer's global marketing and communications director, says, ""The merge of style and function has yet to have been seen in a true consumer-ready sense, and our aim is to discover new-to-market, highly desirable product at accessible prices for our fashion-savvy customer."
