Foodvalley NL and ScaleUp Company support with the program Foodvalley Accelerator scale-ups in the agrifood sector. The Foodvalley Accelerator is intended for Dutch companies with a scalable product or service and a turnover of at least 100,000 euros. The meetings will take place on the grounds of the WFC in Ede.
The step from a successful startup to an established organization is great. Also in the agrifood sector. According to Roger van Hoesel, director of Foodvalley NL, there is a gap in the ecosystem: "There are almost no young companies that grow into a large company. We fill this gap with the Foodvalley Accelerator ".
There is a great need for training and coaching. Mirik Castro, trainer at ScaleUp Company, adds: "Together with Foodvalley NL, we have therefore developed a program for and by entrepreneurs. We focus on the business, but also on the entrepreneur himself. "
