The hottest new beverage brands will take the BevNET Live Winter 2017 stage for the 14th edition of the New Beverage Showdown. BevNET’s signature beverage brand pitch competition will return to the winter conference in Santa Monica on December 4th and 5th.
Sponsored by Venturing & Emerging Brands, an operating unit of the Coca-Cola Co., the New Beverage Showdown 14 will train the spotlight on cutting-edge beverage brands and their founders. Chosen from a pool of promising entrepreneurs, the competitors will be vying for a $10,000 grand prize, as well as unmatched trade exposure to investors, retailers, distributors, and more.
To advance out of the semifinal round, brand leaders must take the BevNET Live stage and wow the audience, both at the conference and online. Each budding entrepreneur will be given only two minutes on December 4th to pitch their product and business plan to an expert panel of judges, who will offer up immediate critiques and advice. Six brands will then be picked to advance to the finals on the following day, using a longer, in-depth presentation window to win over the audience, the viewers, and ultimately, the judges.
Past New Beverage Showdown winners include Rise Brewing, Monfefo, Health-Ade Kombucha, Mother Beverage, Owl’s Brew, Tio Gazpacho, RAU, and MALK.
