SKU is expanding into Atlanta in Spring ’22 to help serve as a catalyst for the Southeast’s dynamic consumer-products industry. An informational cocktail party for potential mentors will be held from 4-7 p.m. ET, Aug. 17th at City Winery Atlanta. RSVP here.

“SKU is excited to be launching SKU Atlanta in the spring of 2022,” says Kirstin Ross, managing director of SKU. “With our model of building an ecosystem of seasoned experts, we create the network of support that allows CPG founders to succeed. Great people and partners are onboard to make SKU Atlanta a destination for the CPG community in the region.

Austin-based SKU is partnering with Atlanta-based Goods & Services and Craft Catalyst and Charlotte-based Silver Falcon Capital.

“Having participated as a mentor with SKU Austin, I was reminded that environments create dynamic movements,” says Paul Choi, chief product officer at Goods + Services. From art in Florence in the Renaissance to tech in the Silicon Valley, the future is made in places where like-minded people build a network that leverages experience, knowledge, and resources to nurture what’s next. As Peter Drucker said, ‘The best way to predict the future is to create it.’ In launching SKU ATL, we are creating the future for CPG in the Southeast.”
