SKU is Austin’s consumer product accelerator, designed to mentor and grow brands through a 14-week educational program in order to promote faster growth. Last week, SKU held their 6th Showcase Graduation Pitch Event that celebrated the 7 companies graduating from SKU’s 6th Track.
The first company representative to present their unique brand story was Albert Swantner, ‘18-20 Notley Fellow and founder of Sway Water. Sway Water is crafted will real fruit and created without preservatives or artificial sweeteners. Despite how crowded the flavored water space has become, no competitor uses organic ingredients, which has helped set Sway Water apart. Albert explained that Sway Water was born out of a desire to find an all-organic flavored water for his children while also doing good. Partnering with 1% for the Planet, Sway Water gives is helping take care of the environment while also giving Austinites a 'feel good' way to stay refreshed during hot Texas summers.
