SKU is kicking off the second year of the SKU Elevate track for BIPOC-owned consumer-packaged good (CPG) brands. Formerly known as the SKU M/O track, the Elevate track aims to foster a more inclusive community by providing crucial education, mentorship and networking, helping to level the playing field that exists for many founders
Open to founders nationwide, SKU Elevate is an 8-week program kicking off in June 2022. The track includes the same top-notch curriculum that SKU is known for on topics including branding, channel strategy, product innovation and operations, all taught by national experts.
Each brand is paired team of mentors – CPG leaders, successful founders and subject-matter experts – dedicated to helping them grow their businesses. The track culminates with the Elevate virtual Showcase pitch event.
SKU does not take equity in the companies. At the end of the track, founders receive seed capital.
