Food tech start-ups with an appetite for success are being offered the opportunity to secure investment, mentoring and business expertise from online takeaway giant Just Eat, with applications now open for its first ever dedicated accelerator programme.
Based out of Just Eat's London office and starting in November, the 10 week accelerator programme has spaces for five early-stage businesses and Just Eat has said it is looking for “dynamic businesses” to bring a “smart idea with amazing potential, and the hunger to make it work”.
All start-up founders operating in the food tech space are eligible to apply with official kick-off pitches for the programme beginning on November 3 and November 4.
Just Eat has promised to invest in the five winning businesses and will bring the businesses “together with number of dedicated mentors, entrepreneurs and industry experts”. At the end of the programme, the company will host a second pitching event where venture capitalists and angel investors will be invited to attend.
