The Accelerator believes the way forward in the fight against hunger is identifying and testing solutions in an agile way. It is a space where the world can find out what works and what doesn’t in addressing hunger – a place where we can be bold, and fail as well as succeed.
Through the regular boot camps and three-to-six-month sprint programme, high-potential social enterprises will get access to mentorship, financial support, and access to the WFP’s operations, partners and technical experts.
- Your start-up, company or NGO must be incorporated at the time of application;
- It can be for-profit or not-for-profit;
- Your innovation must at least be at the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) stage. Proof of concept is preferred;
- Your proposal must show how working with WFP will serve your long-term strategy.
For this cohort, innovation bootcamps will take place on 19-23 November, 2018 with Pitch night on November 22.
