Welcome to SKU 2023!
We educate and equip companies with market-validated products for growth into world-class brands. Each of our SKU tracks for 2023 provides stellar startups with hands-on mentorship from industry experts, investors, and serial entrepreneurs in exchange for an equity stake in each company. Ideal candidates are market-validated companies with compelling founders and innovative products in hot categories that include a spring food and beverage track plus two new track concepts: women/BIPOC-owned brands and petcare.
We are accepting applications from companies across the country. The entirety of the program will be accessible remotely with 1-2 in- person events per track. At the end of our program, companies will pitch in a showcase event for investors and VCs to see the startups in action. A cash bonus upon completion of the program is available.
Apply today and be part of the nation's leading consumer packaged goods accelerator!
The deadline for both Petcare is June 4 (applications for Women/BIPOC track Food & Beverage 2023 are closed).
If selected, participating companies will be expected to exchange an equity stake in your company for the mentorship, network access, and programming provided by SKU. The equity is primarily distributed among the mentors of the track—they are literally invested in your success!
