Vegancuts Launches Spotlight Program for Black-Owned Businesses
Vegancuts is a plant-based snack, beauty, and makeup subscription box service and marketplace. On August 18, the company launched a new Spotlight Program, aiming to highlight several Black-owned vegan businesses throughout the country on their online shop. Each brand will appear in the Spotlight section of the Vegancuts website, and the business owners will be a part of a 4-month program in which they will receive guidance and coaching based on their individual business challenges, as well as support from their fellow peers. In addition to the program, each brand will receive free advertisement and visibility through the Vegancuts social media and email community.

Vegancuts works with businesses to advertise products and takes a commission for each sale through their website. However, in order to support the growth of businesses featured in the Spotlight Program, members will not be charged any commission or credit card fees from sales on the Vegancuts Marketplace, and all revenues will go directly to the Spotlight brands.
Ashish Gupta, CEO of Vegancuts, said of the program launch, “When speaking with Black entrepreneurs and leaders, we realized that they face real inequities that make it so much more challenging to build and develop a business—from a lack of mentorship opportunities for help with facing everyday business decisions, to fewer entrepreneur peers to lean on for support. At Vegancuts, we’re in a unique position to provide meaningful assistance—with both a thriving marketplace as well as a mission-based culture.”
