Given the need for most brokers to require retainers for emerging brands, it can be expensive to find representation for fledgling brands. In an effort to provide a lower cost option for representation by iLevel Brands, we are now launching our incubator program.
Our comprehensive sales representation service offers a wide array of analytics and reporting with access to national coverage and the cost of this representation can be high. This suite of services is what makes us unique. However our buyer relationships and the ability to make presentations to any retailer is equally as strong.
But is there a way to work with us at a lower cost for a taste of what we can do?
Now there is one.
The incubator program focuses on the natural independent stores. Presentation to major chains is an add-on option that is available. The basic program will get you enough points of distribution to confirm proof of concept.
The requirements are simple. You must have items set up with at least one major distributor like UNFI or Kehe in one DC. You must have been in business no more than 3 years.
If this is of interest to you, please book an appointment with us to see if we are a good fit. Acceptance is limited and there is no guarantee that you will be accepted into the program.
A small retainer will be necessary depending on the scope of the project. If you cannot afford an amount that is approximately equal to half the cost of hiring one sales manager then the cost of entry will be prohibitive. We appreciate you applying.
