We are excited to announce that IFE 2015 have asked Grocery Accelerator to partner with them to showcase new brands at the show later this month. This is the post from their website announcing the deal:
“IFE’s exclusive partnership with The Grocery Accelerator aims to help businesses secure investment and deliver increased year on year growth. The Grocery Accelerator works exclusively with promising start-up food and drink companies, with high-growth potential.
Advisors from the Grocery Accelerator will be present on all four days of this leading industry event to offer expert advice. Most excitingly, they will be giving start-ups the opportunity to pitch their business model in three-minute slots throughout the show. Each applicant will receive detailed feedback from a panel of specialists as well as having the chance to showcase their product in front of key industry buyers who have been invited exclusively by IFE.
With limited spaces at IFE and only five places on the annual scholarship programme, competition will no doubt be fierce, but there will be no losers, as the advice given by these industry experts will be invaluable to small businesses seeking to develop and plan for the future.
Not only will the successful applicants win investment for their business, but they will also be able to take advantage of a two-day business ‘bootcamp’, have access to a network of food and beverage experts, as well as being assigned a dedicated FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) mentor. Ultimately the programme supports businesses in their bids to expand affordably and accelerate into a market-leading position.”
