The RutgersX Accelerator Program has been created by the Rutgers Food Innovation Center (FIC), a globally-recognized
incubation program that provides business and technology expertise to startup and established food companies in the
mid-Atlantic region, and utilizes its outreach capacity to support food and agribusinesses throughout the world.
In our inaugural year of the RutgersX Food Accelerator Program, we have developed an accelerator for fast-growing food
companies that have been part of our Rutgers FIC client and partner network for the past several years. We will be
showcasing these companies at our first-ever RutgersX- Accelerating Food Entrepreneurs Conference on November 16, 2015
in New Brunswick, NJ.
The Conference will feature pitch presentations from our cohort of companies to an audience of potential funders, strategic
partners, customers, and fellow food entrepreneurs. Panel discussions with food industry leaders, conversations with
successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists and remarks from state and national government leaders are also on the
agenda. Plus, there will be a unique opportunity for industry networking throughout the day.
