World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator

Offered by World Food Programme

The WFP Innovation Accelerator identifies, nurtures and scales bold solutions to hunger globally. We support WFP innovators and external start-ups and companies through financial support, access to a network of experts and a global field reach. The Innovation Accelerator 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.

We are looking for innovations that meet the following expectations:
Impact for the people we serve and potential to reach Zero Hunger
Feasibility, including time to deliver impact, technology maturity, and user traction
Level of innovation
Financial sustainability with a clear business case that does not rely on WFP funding
Team strength, experience, and commitment
