Welcome to ImpactSKU!
We educate and equip companies with market-validated products for growth into world-class brands. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, ImpactSKU provides stellar startups with hands-on mentorship from industry experts, investors, and serial entrepreneurs in exchange for 5% equity stake in each company.
For ImpactSKU we are looking for products that are more than just a better for you alternative, or eco-friendly packaging. We are looking for brands that have woven social impact into their business model. We use the UN's 17 sustainable development goals, and 5 P's (People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnerships), to help us define a purpose-driven company.
Companies do not need to be based in the Twin Cities to apply. We are accepting applications from companies across the Midwest and country. The entirety of the program will be accessible remotely. The possibility of in-person events will be assessed based on the state of COVID at the time.
At the end of our program, companies will pitch in a virtual showcase event for investors and VCs to see the startups in action. A cash bonus upon completion of the program of $20,000 is available.
