What We Do
We work with internal entrepreneurs and external start-ups to build solutions that work

Boot Camps

Boot Camps are often the first stop on the journey for many projects and start-ups. Over the course of 3-10 days, innovation and humanitarian experts help teams deep dive challenges, ideate solutions and refine project plans. Boot Camps combine innovation techniques such as human centred design with WFP’s deep field knowledge and operational excellence.

Sprint Programme

Our Sprint Programme is an intensive 3-6 month acceleration that helps projects and start-ups reach proof of concept and/or develop prototypes ready for implementation. Teams receive financial support, guidance and space to bring their idea to life from the Munich-based Accelerator, and access to WFP’s global network of partners and resources.

Innovation Fund

The WFP Innovation Fund provides grants to second stage innovations that have reached a proof of concept to scale globally. Projects and start-ups that graduate from the WFP Sprint Programme are eligible for funding. The WFP Innovation Fund is supported by governmental and private sector donors. To learn how you can contribute, email us today. 

R&D (Thought Leadership)

WFP is actively exploring new trends, technologies and long-term project strategies that can help move us towards Zero Hunger. The Innovation Accelerator works with UN sister agencies, academia and private sector innovation leaders to find and leverage game-changing products or services. Supported projects receive unparalleled access to R&D leaders in for and non-profit sectors.
