Event Partner


The retail landscape is experiencing a seismic shift. The old formulas and assumptions just don’t cut it anymore. If we’re going to stay ahead of the curve, we’ll need to think differently. That’s why we started Target Accelerators. When we combine the passion, vision and agility of entrepreneurs with our network, contacts and infrastructure, anything is possible.  We believe that partnership is how we drive innovation and instigate change. We believe in game-changing ideas, and we believe in the entrepreneurs who dream them.

Target Takeoff is a five-week program geared specifically toward consumer brands. This accelerator runs multiple times a year focusing on a specific Target category for each cohort (e.g., wellness, beauty, etc.). Our approach uniquely combines unprecedented access to Target, mentorship from subject matter experts, and tailored curriculum for founders to scale into mass retail.
