Let's scale your foodtech startup

What we believe

We believe that technology has a potential of uncovering agricultural solutions with an eye on sustainability and food security and that technology disrupting the ways we eat and drink can be true game-changers.

We’re also profoundly convinced that consumer trends towards health awareness, convenience and quality products combined with the growing influence of technology will pave the way for a new personalized nutrition revolution. Wearable technology which provides insights into healthy living and personalized nutrition based on genetic testing will also be on our radar. Likewise, we’re interested in the emergence of functional food with the goal of providing natural, sustainable and scientifically proven health solutions based on bioinformatics.

Our portfolio of foodtech startups

ComEat is an online platform that connects expats and locals for dinner at home. Socializing during a homecooked meal is a great way to make new friends and this gives international students a sense of belonging, making it more attractive to stay after graduating.
Circular Food Technology
Circular Food Technology turns the leftovers from food production into healthy and tasteful ingredients. From brewer's spent grain they develop versatile products with high levels of protein and dietary fibers, easy to integrate into the existing diet. By upcycling a byproduct and sourcing it locally they also offer the consumer a sustainable alternative to other superfoods.  
Odd Season
Odd Season helps fruit and vegetable companies reduce the waste of fruits and vegetables that are not seen as good enough to be sold in regular sale channels. This happens by transforming the otherwise wasted raw fruit and vegetables into new and innovative frozen food products.  
Planteslagterne offers premade 100% plant-based convenience products of high quality. The convenience products are made of organic and natural ingredients and make it easy to cook tasty plant-based meals.
Rebæl provides an alternative to classic cocktails by offering well-crafted organic drinks either bottled, bag-in-box or in kegs. Their drinks are developed according to their own unique recipes and are composed exclusively of carefully selected local and organic ingredients. Consumers can buy their 'off the shelf' products while companies can let Rebæl develop a smaller batch of private labeled drinks, just for them.
The jungle app helps you decide where to eat, sleep, drink, dance and explore when you visit cities, and it's all by the help of people with impeccable taste such as Instagrammers, photographers, designers, DJs, chefs, etc. With the Jungle app, you can find out where local people tell their friends to go.

Arla Foods has a vision of creating foods of the future. Accelerace has helped Arla to scout, attract and select foodtech startups from all over the world. One of them is Mimica

“Accelerace made a huge difference to Trustpilot because they introduced me to people who had the exact experience we needed. Especially in the devising of our business model and the execution of it, it made a crucial difference to us. I’m not sure we would have existed today if it wasn’t for that introduction."

Peter Mühlmann

Founder and CEO of Trustpilot

"Accelerace was really helpful at narrowing down on what's most important, and not doing too many things at the same time."

Michael Haase

CEO and founder of Plant Jammer

“Accelerace validates your ideas and everything you’ve been working on. I mean, they have been looking on so many companies for so long, they have been entrepreneurs themselves. They know the game.”

Frederick-Sebastian Krause

Founder of VI.ER AKVAVIT

"I found the Accelerace program is unique in that it actually gives you a real chance of securing a pilot with a big company. Our biggest milestone more recently is, that Arla has decided to do a pilot with us. Obviously enabled by the Accelerace program, which is wonderful."

Solveiga Pakštaitė

Founder of Mimicalab

"The Accelerace team has in the one month already proven to be a massive source of support, belief and education. It has increased our knowledge and keeps sharpening our focus while opening up doors to new corporate partners. We already have heavyweight director’s joining as mentors providing invaluable insight how to grow our business further.”
