Food Works welcomes applications

The Irish government-run accelerator program is seeking applications from local entrepreneurs for its 2017 edition.

Food Works, an Ireland-based accelerator program aimed at the food and drinks sector backed by various government entities, is now accepting applications for its 2017 cohort, the Irish Times reported yesterday.

Food Works is run by Bord Bia, the state-owned Irish Food Board that promotes the sale of Irish produce domestically and internationally, along with Teagasc, a semi-state authority responsible for R&D, training and advisory services in the agri-food sector, and government-owned export credit agency Enterprise Ireland.

Entrepreneurs and startups have been invited to register for an introductory meeting, which will be followed by a formal application and a bootcamp for shortlisted participants.

Food Works was established in 2012 and since then has seen nearly 70 startups graduate from its program. They have received €2m ($2.1m) in funding from Enterprise Ireland between them.
