The Bridge by Coca-Cola

The Bridge

The Bridge is a unique Commercialization Program for startups, acting as a bridge between the entrepreneurial community and major global markets including the US, Europe, Africa/Eurasia and the Pacific.

The Startups

The Bridge startups range from early stage to growth startups. They offer software solutions that are ready to commercialize and that fit one of five core themes: Consumer Engagement, Consumer Retail, Supply Chain, Marketing Innovation and Health & Wellness.

The Program

The program lasts six months and provides tangible commercial guidance. It does so by providing the startups with in-depth marketing training, access to experienced business mentors and connection to Coca-Cola business sponsors. The commercialization process includes an opportunity to pilot within Coca-Cola and a chance to license the startup’s product to Coca-Cola and/or its partners. The Bridge does not require any equity or IP ownership from the startups.
