Sodexo launches global Accelerator programme

Applications have officially opened for Sodexo's 2024 global Accelerator programme, an initiative aimed at boosting collaborations between the caterer and start-ups. The caterer says it is a key force in allowing it to have a finger on the pulse of the latest trends and disruptions in the service industry.

For fledgling companies, working with Sodexo is an opportunity to ‘accelerate’ their development by benefiting from experienced business mentors, decades of industry knowledge and a global client footprint. Selected start-ups will be primed to scale their business and work with Sodexo for the long-term, while contributing to its innovation process.

After several successful local editions in key markets – including the UK in 2022, as well as the US and Brazil – this new global edition of Sodexo’s Accelerator programme is a first. It will focus on identifying innovative solutions to enhance the workplace experience of its consumers worldwide through a 10-week programme.

Martin Boden, chief executive officer of Sodexo global strategic accounts, said: “We’re excited to launch the 2024 Global Accelerator, further demonstrating our commitment to bring innovation at scale to our clients, who are leading players in their industries. This is an exceptional opportunity both for us and for disruptive startups to partner together to continue to evolve our service offering.”
