SnackFutures' mission is to create a snacking world that is good for people, kind to the planet and deliciously fun. CoLab was built to provide start-ups with tools, technologies and expertise that can help them learn, grow and succeed.

For the CoLab class of 2022, we are looking for mission driven start-up snack brands who have built their business on the promise of positive impact on social, environmental and human well-being. Applicants must demonstrate that their missions are authentic and actionable, inform business from end-to-end, play a key role in driving growth and motivate consumers to engage.

Each participant will receive a $20,000 grant to support their business and participate in a 12-week curriculum.

Applications for CoLab have now closed.

The Program

CoLab is a consecutive 12-week program that begins in April 2022. It is a virtual curriculum with three in-person events (COVID permitting) that includes:

  • Customized problem solving, 1:1 mentorship, workshops, participant share-outs and access to Mondelēz International senior leaders and experts.
  • Expertise from our external network across venture, distribution, design, innovation, digital, insights, communications, brand building – and more.

A final showcase for brands to share their 'pitch' with key stakeholders.

Applications for CoLab have now closed, but we are still accepting applications for Ventures Partnerships.

We're always hungry for new ideas.

We'd love to hear more from you. Let's connect.
