Beyond SKU1 Sponsorship Opportunities


The Opportunity

BeyondSKU is embarking upon its 1st  track in NYC to develop a select group of emerging brands with our high-powered mentors and custom designed curriculum. SKU, the first and leading CPG accelerator, is partnering with top tier consulting CPG firm BeyondBrands to create BeyondSKU.  Building on the continued success of SKU Austin tracks 1-7, which have accelerated over 37 companies including our “greatest hits” like Epic, Siete, and Seaweed Bath Co. BeyondSKU will commence in September 2019.

BeyondSKU’s innovative business model is part of the reason for our success. Simply put, mentors have skin in the game in two ways.  BeyondSKU mentors invest their time and money to participate in the program because of:

  • Our powerful industry network  which often leads to new business opportunities for mentors.

  • The opportunity to own a small piece of equity in the promising brands they mentor.  

BeyondSKU tracks differ from other incubators and accelerators because mentorship goes deep.  In addition to our intensive curriculum, which gives them a 360° perspective of what it takes to scale a CPG company, they, on average, spend a minimum of 8 to 16 hours a week with their individual mentors honing their product concept and developing growth strategies.

BeyondSKU is a growing community of powerful people on a mission to help small brands with big dreams to become household names.  By leveraging the collective wisdom of a diverse group of seasoned CPG veterans, we provide entrepreneurs with a strong foundation for sustainable growth and priceless guidance to avoid unnecessary pitfalls and scale faster.

SKU has become a powerful hub for sponsors, mentors and entrepreneurs and we realize the value that our community provides.  We make sure that sponsors benefit greatly from their support of the SKU program with tailored benefits, whether sponsors are interested in:
