The World Food Programme’s Innovation Accelerator began in 2016 and its process, “Design. Fail. Iterate. Scale.” is reminiscent of a startup accelerator. The Innovation Accelerator accepts applications from WFP staff, aspiring startups, NGOs, and companies, selects the best, and offers funding and several months of coaching from the WFP and its partners.
