Up to US$100,000 in equity-free funding is up for grabs for teams entering the Global Innovation Challenge for Zero Hunger.

Spearheaded by the World Food Programme (WFP) Innovation Accelerator and Cargill, the call for applications is open until 28 February. The initiative is ‘looking for proposals that could transform the lives of smallholder farmers and small-scale livestock producers, reach a step change in food systems or increase the effectiveness of emergency response’.

From mobile applications to artificial intelligence, post-harvest loss prevention and new cultivation techniques, the challenge is seeking low- and high-tech solutions, business model innovations and more.

Teams selected will join the the WFP Innovation Accelerator from 13 to 17 May 2019 in Munich, where they will get the chance to secure funding. Apply now.
