Do you have a great idea? Apply for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) Innovation Accelerator. WFP’s Innovation Accelerator identifies, nurtures and scales bold solutions to hunger globally. The World Food Programme (WFP) is inspiring and supporting new ideas, tools and solutions that make sure no one goes hungry. They support WFP intrapreneurs and external start-ups and companies from their home in Munich, Germany, through financial support, access to a network of experts and a global field reach.
The Accelerator believes the way forward in the fight against hunger is not necessarily in building grand plans, but identifying and testing solutions in an agile way. It 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.
