We are now seeking the next generation of founders, who are determined to scale up their impactful solutions to promote
personal and communal responsibility, affordability, accessibility, sustainability, health and taste.
4 to 6 companies will be selected to participate in the program with in-kind value of up to $100k per company.
Unlike traditional accelerators we do not work with start-ups, rather we work with founders and companies that have some proof of concept to "scale-up" to the next stage of growth. Additionally, we work with mission-oriented companies across the food ecosystem.
We help impactful companies on track to grossing more than $1MM annual sales with hyper scaling potential in consumer products, online marketplace solutions, SaaS platforms, food hubs, supply chain solutions, ag tech and food tech.
