Information meeting Foodvalley Accelerator

The Foodvalley Accelerator is a program of Foodvalley NL and ScaleUp Company to support companies accomplishing growth. The mission is to empower agrifood scaleups with the tools, accountability and network to grow and flourish after the startup phase. The Foodvalley Accelerator started with the first group scaleups in the spring of 2019. A new group of entrepreneurs can start their program in the fall of 2019. For interested entrepreneurs with a business we organize an information meeting on the 29th of August. The kick-off will take place on the 7th of October.


During this information meeting you will meet the people behind the Foodvalley Accelerator from Foodvalley NL and ScaleUp Company. The structure and content of the program will be discussed in more detail. After the program there will be a drink for networking. The language of the meeting will be English. This meeting aims to inform entrepeneurs with an agrifood business who are interested in participating in the Foodvalley Accelerator.

The Foodvalley Accelerator has been developed for and by entrepreneurs and focuses on the businesses as well as the entrepreneurs themselves. The program is based on the Rockefeller Habits 2.0, the proven methodology of Verne Harnish that initiates and guides growth. This method highlights four themes: People, Strategy, Execution and Cash. Tools for these themes are provided in the quarterly Learning Days. The participants are divided into small groups who, together with a coach, discuss their progress in monthly “Accountability Sessions”. On top of that, all participants automatically become Foodvalley Members, and can benefit from the network Foodvalley has to offer.



Interested in more information about the program? Register for the information meeting 29th of August for free.
