The World Food Programme (WFP) Innovation Accelerator’s facilitators will meet innovator teams looking to scale-up their projects at Google Headquarters in San Francisco, California. While there, they will run through intensive bootcamp experiences and sprint processes designed to help them rethink their problem sets, hone their ideas, and develop viable solutions to address global hunger.
Scale-ups are advanced-stage innovations that have already proven their project concepts. They will participate in a 3-day bootcamp in preparation to expand their potential to scale globally and connect with Silicon Valley experts. Our collaborating corporate partners provide real-world expertise in management, marketing, user-centered design, product optimization and last-mile delivery.
Once they’ve honed their ideas, these scale-ups will then showcase their ideas to one of the largest pools of international investors and corporate decision-makers from the Silicon Valley community that we have ever engaged! The goal isn’t to out-compete each other; it’s to resource transformative projects that will change how we address hunger and humanitarian assistance.
