EIT Food Accelerator Network (FAN)

EIT Food Accelerator Network (FAN)

The existing EIT FAN (Food Accelerator Network) programme will be expanded to 5 acceleration hubs based in UK, ES, CH, IL and DE thereby enabling greater business impact from European research and innovation.

The number of startups accelerated will be increased to 50 in 2019. Application and selection are managed on the proven accelerator platform used in EIT FAN 2018 prior to a structured 4 month programme with expert coaching from EIT Food partner companies, VCs, investors, experienced entrepreneurs and mentors, combined with elements of expertise from all partners involved. The startups going through the selection process can compete for 3 financial prizes. Graduates of the EIT FAN will apply to become members of the RisingFoodStars club and become part of the EIT Food ecosystem and contribute to EIT Food’s innovation strategy.

If you are an agrifood startup looking for financing, coaching, investors and support, check out the official EIT FAN website.
