Focused learning, expert mentoring and peer-to-peer collaboration: the TFF Academy is revolutionising startup acceleration in the food and agriculture space. Instead of reinventing the wheel, we try to connect dots across the world.

From June until September 2021, 10 TFF Finalists are taking part in the TFF Academy, a three-month, personalized acceleration program that takes next-gen, agri-food-tech startups to the next level through hands-on mentorship and support in areas like pitching, storytelling, business model development, customer validation, and industry introductions. Additionally, the Finalists selected in the TFF Challenge 2021 are matched with mentors and experts who can help them take their venture to the next level.

  • Being a part of TFF opens a portal to regions of the world you otherwise wouldn’t be able to see. It’s been extremely meaningful to interact with individuals from all corners of the globe and learn about their motivations to drive food and ag innovations there.
