Mondelēz International’s SnackFutures Opens Applications for CoLab 2023
CoLab 2023 is inviting disruptively delicious snack brands to apply for its collaborative start-up program. This is the third year of the start-up engagement program which was created to bring ‘big and small’ together to drive mutual growth.
The program provides start-ups with tools, technologies, expertise and a $20,000 grant to help them learn, grow and succeed. The 12-week program includes in-person workshops, hands-on experiences and virtual curriculum sessions, along with 1:1 mentorship, access to Mondelēz International experts and its partners across the globe.
SnackFutures is the Mondelēz International innovation and venture hub, deliberately designed to push boundaries in snacking by capitalizing on consumer trends and emerging growth opportunities in well-being snacks around the world. The team is looking for brands to join the 2023 CoLab that are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in making a snack delicious - from flavors, to experience, to sustainability to packaging - as well as grabbing the attention of retailers and getting consumers coming back for more.
Applications for the CoLab 2023 program are open now through December 2022. The program begins in April of 2023. To apply, start-ups must be based in the U.S., generating at least $1M in revenue, have high growth potential, align with the Mondelēz International innovation priorities and can benefit from working with the company.
