due diligence

what we like

  • 📈 a modern take on a high-demand product: with the whipped cream market reaching up to $10.3 billion by 2025, the industry is due for an innovative solution
  • 📊 consumer trends: while dessert will never go away, sweets are trending healthier; Whipnotic’s low-sugar and natural take on a consumer staple is promising
  • 💂🏼‍♂️ patent protection: Whipnotic’s patented nozzle gives them the a competitive edge and opportunity to expand into other categories (think deodorant, sunscreen)

potential risks

  • 🏆 winning shelf space: for emerging CPG brands, shelf space is crucial for gaining brand awareness, yet difficult to earn
    • but with early success at Citarella locations, Whipnotic is on track to whip the competition
  • 🥛 dairy-free? while the product aligns with many consumer trends, dairy intake is on the decline and dairy-free alternatives could bring competition
  • 💲 competition from legacy brands: dairy giants and snack conglomerates have sizable marketing budgets and R&D teams continue innovating their product offerings

founder profiles

comps

why Whipnotic: Whipnotic creamed its initial launch last month and sold out in all locations; this strong start leads us to believe the company can take market share 🛒
