ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The GROW Impact Accelerator is GROW's flagship accelerator programme designed to open new markets for international startups looking to expand into Asia, and for regional startups to launch on the global stage

 

Delivered entirely virtually, the ​five-month programme primary focus was two-fold:

1) sharpening teams' growth strategies and helping them scale aggressively into new markets; and

2) guiding the teams through AgFunder & GROW's own frameworks for impact measurement, and integrating them into each team's process.

 

We focused on startups operating in new frontiers of agtech and foodtech, teams who were changing the future of food while tackling the world’s biggest challenges of sustainability.
