By: BeyondSKU
NEW YORK - May 17, 2023 - PRLog -- BeyondSKU, the nation's leading accelerator for consumer-packaged goods (CPGs), is accepting applications from CPG companies for its fall cohort.

The ideal applicants are innovative market-validated food, beverage and wellness brands in hot categories with passionate founders. Companies interested in applying can apply here until June 15, 2023.

"Building on the continued success of Austin's 18 tracks, we are excited to kick off BeyondSKU Track 4 this September," says Eric Schnell, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BeyondBrands. "I am proud our New York focused accelerator plays a key role in growing our local entrepreneurial community of small brands to become household names, while leveraging the collective wisdom of our diverse talented group of seasoned CPG veterans who lean in deep with mentorship and networking."

SKU, based in Austin, is the nation's first CPG accelerator. Since it was founded in 2011, over 120 brands have gone through the program, including such success stories as Epic Provisions, Siete, and DUDE Wipes. BeyondSKU - a partnership between Austin-based SKU and BeyondBrands, New York's top natural products consulting agency - launched in 2019.

Classes kick off in Manhattan Sept. 26 through Dec. 12. On Jan. 19th, the founders will present their pitches to an audience of investors, CPG leaders and fellow successful founders.

BeyondSKU's curriculum covers topics important to CPG startups, including Mission + Vision, Branding, Investment, Legal, Channel Strategy, Supply Chain and Innovation.

One of the most valuable components of SKU is its elite community of mentors from some of the most successful consumer product companies as well as successful CPG founders, subject-matter experts and investors. Each SKU founder is surrounded by a hand-picked team of mentors focused on helping them scale their businesses as they guide them through the program.

In addition to the rewards of working with founders to help them achieve their potential, mentors benefit from the experience of working side by side with their peers. If you are a CPG leader who is interested in mentoring for BeyondSKU, please email
