Accelerating Startups By Building Powerful Brands

The Brandery is a seed stage startup accelerator that leverages the expertise of the Cincinnati region, namely branding, marketing and design. We believe that building your brand— and not just a product— is a way startups can be more resource efficient and increase their probability of success. In addition to an elite mentor list, startups will be paired with world-class creative agencies and have access to some of the biggest companies in the world, including Procter & Gamble and Kroger. The Brandery runs one, 12-week accelerator program a year for a group of 5-7 startups selected from a highly competitive application pool. Startups receive a $100k equity investment, a year of free office space, and over $200k in additional benefits.

The Brandery invests in high-growth startups within five verticals: Digitally Native Vertical Brands, CPG, Marketing Tech, Retail Tech, and Ad Tech.. The Brandery is a SILVER-tier accelerator in the U.S. as ranked by the Seed Accelerator Rankings Project.
