4 to 8 companies will be selected to participate in the program. Cohort companies will receive an investment of up to $10k per company in addition to the in-kind value of the program, the ongoing mentorship and advisor network after the program period, and the possibility for follow-on investment from food future fund.
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.
No. We understand that you are busy growing your business. While we are based in New York, we work with companies worldwide, and are able to provide support wherever you are located. Face to face meetings, and participation in our event series and networking opportunities are highly concentrated in NYC, we encourage your presence from time to time.
In exchange for our services, we ask for between 4-8% equity.
Our previous portfolio companies have received more funding post-program than all funding raised before the program. Portfolio companies typically raise 1.5x more grant funding than equity investment.
We accept applications on a rolling basis.
FoodFutureCo does not intend to work with companies that compete directly in any given cohort. There may be overlap between cohorts, but we make every effort to prioritize our existing portfolio companies while selecting new cohorts to avoid direct competition.
The duration of the program is approximately 5 months.
The program runs 2 times per year.

We look for respected experts and innovators in their field who are committed to sharing their time and guidance to build a supportive community for our companies.
