The Virginia Small Business Development Center and Cureate Courses invite companies in the Charlottesville and Shenandoah Valley regions to apply for the inaugural cohort of the Food and Beverage Accelerator.
This free, intensive 6-week program is designed to help the founders and CEOs of growth-oriented food and beverage producers acquire the competencies required to grow and scale existing operations and to consider the next steps in strategic growth opportunities through wholesale, retail, and direct-to-consumer sales channels.
In order to be eligible for the program, companies must be:
• Located in the Charlottesville or Shenandoah Valley region
• Planning for specific growth (e.g. territory, product lines, production scale)
• Producers of food and beverage products in the consumer-packaged goods category
The application period opens 9AM Monday 2/15 and closes 5PM Monday 3/8. Selected companies will be notified by Friday 3/12 and the program begins the week of 3/29.
