Next month, following the success of their Feeding the City: Start Up programme – for entrepreneurs at the start of their journey – our friends at the Impact Hub Kings Cross have developed the 6 month Feeding the City: Accelerate programme to help with the next stage of growth.

“Drawing on insights from scaling food enterprises and expertise from EIT Food, Sustain, Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Charity, Food Chain, Big Society Capital and large scale buyers, we’ve co-designed the programme to help you overcome the key challenges that sustainable food businesses face when they come to scale.”

The programme brings together food sustainability leaders, large scale buyers, enterprise support providers and investors, all working towards helping impact-driven food enterprises to grow and flourish.

 

 

Who are they looking for?

Social or environmental impact driven food enterprises with B2B revenue streams looking to scale growth and sustainability in tandem.

 

Benefits include:

  • Access to expert business analysis
  • Mentoring and support from  experienced coaches
  • Six month’s Impact Hub “Connect” membership
  • The opportunity to meet and network with buyers, including supermarket chains, restaurants and major contract catering companies.

 

1.9 million tonnes of food is wasted by the UK food industry every year. If your is business trying to change this, or another food-related problem, for the better, apply for Feeding The City: Accelerate programme now!

Application deadline: 9 February, 2020.
