San Francisco based Founder Institute, which is the world’s premier pre-seed accelerator and startup launch programme, and Finland’s leading retailer S Group, have announced the launch of a new joint start-up programme: Food Founder Programme. Based in Helsinki, it will be helping aspiring entrepreneurs within the food and agricultural sectors launch their business ideas by providing them with feedback and mentorship from over 100 food founder experts from various universities and research institutes.
