As an expansion of P&G’s continued support of the Cincinnati startup ecosystem, two fellowships will be offered to Brandery companies in the 2015 accelerator cohort. As with our other fellowships, any startup that applies will be considered for the fellowship. Here are the benefits:
1. Direct access to P&G mentors & experts who will help the startup better prepare for solution driven engagements with potential large customers.
2. Active connections with P&G brand teams and executives to inform solution design and go-to-market strategy.
3. Pre-commitment to a paid in-market pilot with a P&G brand as part of The Brandery experience.
4. Opportunities to engage with global senior executives on business strategy.
Specifically for this fellowship, The Brandery and P&G are looking for startups that excel in one of three core areas: Connected Products and Platforms, Seamless Brand Building & Commerce, or Big Data & Analytics. You can read more about these three categories here.
“We’re thrilled about Procter & Gamble’s continued support of The Brandery and our startups. If you’re a startup looking to sell to marketers or work with CPG companies, there is not going to be a better opportunity to change the trajectory of your business.”
–Dave Knox, Co-founder, The Brandery
Procter & Gamble has been an active supporter of The Brandery, including hosting startup pitch events at P&G for brand tech companies, participating in Brand Fusion, helping lead workshops (like Growth Hack Day) and mentoring startups.
P&G’s fellowship offering is going to directly impact startups in our accelerator program, adding even more fuel to the fire for #StartupCincy.
The final deadline to apply to The Brandery is April 16. Apply now.
