Stacy's Pita Chips launched Stacy's Rise Challenge to help support and inspire female entrepreneurs in the food and beverage space.
Stacy's Rise Challenge was created in partnership with Alice, which is an online resource for female entrepreneurs. The program was created to fill a gap in the support for female founders in the US. Stacy's Pita Chips itself is a female-founded business and the brand wanted to find a way to support other women—especially those in the food and beverage space. Thus, Stacy's Rise Challenge provides $200,000 in grant funding to help women grow their food or beverage-focused businesses. Five female entrepreneurs will receive a $20,000 funding prize, with one of those women winning an additional $100,000 grand prize award. Beyond grant funding, Stacy’s Rise Project also offers mentorship and community.
