USA Pavilion presents Feeding the Accelerator
The USA Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 is calling on entrepreneurs looking to change the world of food! Feeding the Accelerator, a unique program by the USA Pavilion curated by AtelierSlice and supported by Microsoft Corporation, launches the online application process today with a pitch competition at Seeds & Chips in Milan, an event that brings together innovators, companies and investors eager to revolutionize how food is produced, distributed, consumed and depicted.
“As an entrepreneur who has spent the last several decades in Silicon Valley, I understand how critical innovation and technology are when it comes to meeting the challenge of feeding more than nine billion by 2050,” said Doug Hickey, USA Pavilion Commissioner General. “Our Accelerator program will play an essential role in uncovering the ideas and people needed to tackle this global food issue.”
