About the Award: WFP’s Innovation Accelerator identifies, nurtures and scales bold solutions to hunger globally. We support WFP intrapreneurs and external start-ups and companies from our home in Munich, Germany, through financial support, access to a network of experts and a global field reach.

Based in Munich, Germany, the WFP Innovation Accelerator helps identify, develop and roll out bold new ideas for a world with zero hunger.
As of July 2017, more than 20 internal-WFP innovation projects are being supported that address a range of challenges—from blockchain to improving farmers’ access to critical market and weather information. Innovation projects supported by the Accelerator receive financial support worth USD 50-100,000 for a three- to six-month sprint, hands-on support, strategic guidance and access to a global network of experts and partners.

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.
