For the third year in a row, Stacy's Pita Chips is helping female food founders find funding through its Stacy's Rise Project.
Stacy's Pita Chips, which was founded by Stacy Madison in 1996, is helping other female founders get their food and beverage products in front venture capital firms. Called the Rise Project, Stacy’s Rise Project was launched in 2019 as a program to help women grow their food and beverage ventures through funding, mentorship, and community.
Selected recipients will receive a $10,000 grant to help grow their business. As mentioned in our podcast episode How PepsiCo is Helping Female Founders Find Funding in Food & Beverage, those recipients will also be connected with PepsiCo/Frito-Lay leaders and other industry experts through a virtual mentorship program.
To be eligible, applicants must be a female-founded business and:
- Record at least $25,000 and no more than $1M in annualized sales
- Agree to participate in the virtual mentorship program
- Not be part of an accelerator program at the time of entry
