Powered by CO.LAB in partnership with Proof, The Company Lab’s Consumer Goods Accelerator is returning this summer.
Budding entrepreneurs still have time to sign up for the upcoming Consumer Goods Accelerator, which is a free, intensive 10-week program designed to help early stage businesses grow.
The program is for entrepreneurs who make products — such as pre-packaged food + bev products and agriculture products — as well as established eateries that are looking to expand.
The deadline to apply is June 16.
The program will have teams that participate in-person and online.
Companies must, at minimum, have tested their product in the market and demonstrated proof of concept.
Ideal companies are those making items such as, but not limited to:
Pre-packaged beverage products, such as spirits, beer, and kombucha
Pre-packaged food products
Health and lifestyle products
Established and scalable restaurant, brewery and distillery concepts
Agricultural products, such as creameries
“I knew very quickly that the work the accelerator program was setting out to do was exactly what we needed, and it couldn’t have come at a better time,” Padgett Arnold, owner of Sequatchie Cove Creamery, said.
