Applications for the latest round of the Innovation Accelerator from the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) need to be in by 21 August.

The Munich-based initiative from the WFP is seeking pioneering startups for its Sprint Programme.

“Our Sprint Programme is an intensive 3 – 6 month acceleration that helps projects and startups reach proof of concept, develop prototypes ready for implementation, and or scale. Teams receive financial support, guidance and space to bring their idea to life from the Munich-based Accelerator, and access to WFP’s global network of partners and resources.
Teams participating in the Sprint Programme receive up to USD 80,000 per Sprint, with further funding dependent upon progress and achievement of key targets,” WFP states on its website.
