Description

About KC Brands

KC Brands (KC) is a brand incubator for CPG brands in the health & wellness space. KC was born from a consumer trial platform that tested over 350 health & wellness food and beverage brands with consumers across many different demographics representative of the US market. KC relies on data gathered on CPG’s along the spectrum of sophistication from the smallest of startups to the largest of manufacturers (e.g., Kraft, General Mills, Nestle, Mars) to pick the next successful brands in the space.

Our portfolio includes on-trend, better-for-you snack foods that don't taste "healthy" but have clean ingredients and excellent nutritional profiles.

We are looking for exceptional interns to join our team throughout the year. Our former interns have gone on to jobs at Google, McKinsey, private equity, tech start ups, and more. Internships start at 10-12 weeks in duration, with opportunities to extend or convert to full time roles based on performance

Brand Launch Internship
This fall and winter, we are launching and looking to rapidly scale 4 new product brands – a high protein soy crisp bar (think healthy rice krispy treat), a crunchy kale popper, a sweet dessert popper, and an organic pumpkin seed cluster. All of our products are non-GMO and gluten free, and we believe they have the potential to transform the healthy snacking landscape.

We are looking for future marketers with entrepreneurial spirits to join our team in January and help us launch these brands. You’ll play a critical role in getting our brands off the ground and positioning them for success, and receive hands-on experience and training. While the life of an entrepreneur isn’t always glamorous – we all have to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty sometimes – you’ll see first hand what running a start up is like and get to own your own marketing projects.

You’ll also receive one-on-one mentorship from our team of successful serial entrepreneurs, who have a combined 35+ years of industry experience spanning CPG, retail, tech, finance, and consulting.

This internship is designed for pre-business students in their junior or senior years who are interested in becoming marketers or entrepreneurs. The best candidates will be hungry, hard working, willing to take the initiative and unafraid of getting their hands dirty for the right learning opportunity.

Interns will be responsible for 1-2 projects over the course of their internship, depending on their interests and our needs. Projects will be structured to be meaningful and impactful for both interns and KC Brands. In addition to these 1-2 projects, interns will participate in weekly team meetings.

Responsibilities

Projects may include:
- Launch planning for new products
- Sales planning and execution; tradeshows
- Social media marketing
- In-store brand promotions
- Packaging and other collateral design

**Pay is commission based on sales; as we're a brand new startup, we cannot offer a stipend at this time

Requirements

Must be a hustler and hungry to learn and do
