We work with hundreds of up-and-coming CPG brands because of our partnerships (such as Indiegogo) and because of our track record of pioneering new products in the retail distribution (and b2b) space. Time and time again there’s an imbalance of perceived significance between sell-in and sell-through. Okay, developing a retail strategy, talking to the right sales channels, and ultimately closing favorable deals is not “easy”; however, it’s far easier than the work that follows. The majority of young, innovative CPG startups I talk to have already generated buying interest from Best Buy, QVC, Home Depot, Amazon, Walmart, CVS, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc. I’ve never spoken to a CPG brand (granted I look for unique products) who went belly up because they couldn’t find a retailer willing to take them on. Enough people exist with “connections”, otherwise with enough determination you can find a way to get in touch.
