The problem

90% of people around the world suffer from acne at least once in their lives, and while nutrition and skin wellbeing are directly related, there’s no easy way for people to understand how their diet may affect their skin and no food products rich in skin-friendly ingredients.

The solution

Skinutri is a chocolate bar packed with a carefully curated mix of nutrients that promote healthier skin, including plant-based collagen, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C & E.  It offers consumers who want their confectionery to taste good and do them good inside and out a skin-friendly option.

Why did you apply to the Summer Accelerator Programme?

The Summer Accelerator is a great way to get in touch with a personal mentor and business coach to help with business-related questions, but we’re also keen to fast-forward our venture and test our product in a ‘safe’ environment. The Programme is also a great chance to get to know the other amazing teams and their ideas, exchange experience and find other ventures to collaborate with in the future.

What are you looking to achieve through the Summer Accelerator?

Our main goal for the Summer Accelerator is to launch our product through our website and potentially secure our first stockists. We’ll dedicate the next 3 months to perfecting our go-to-market strategy, finalise our packaging and distribution and secure our desired board members as members of the team. Most of all, we want to learn as much as we can, get inspired and meet other enthusiastic entrepreneurs to make this time a unique and fun journey!
