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.

Arla

"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.
