Alltech & Dogpatch Labs team up to launch Accelerator

The Sprout Partner Network continues to grow with our newest global partnership having just launched their inaugural Accelerator. We welcome the Irish founder led organisation Alltech and Ireland’s leading co-working space for scaling technology start-ups Dogpatch Labs to our global partnership network.

Alltech, a leading global biotechnology company whose mission is to improve the health and performance of people, animals and plants through natural nutrition and scientific innovation, have teamed up with Dogpatch Labs to deliver the Pearse Lyons Accelerator.

The programme combines Alltech’s leadership and expertise in agricultural and nutritional science with the tech ecosystem and start-up network of Dogpatch Labs.

The Accelerator, which is scheduled to run for five years, is hosting a three month intensive boot camp for ten food and agribusiness innovators with proven technology ready for market. As one of the ten businesses selected to participate in the Accelerator, they get €15k non-equity funding from Alltech, perks of up to €300,000, expert mentoring and the opportunity to pitch for Investment at the end of the Accelerator. The pitch will take place at Alltech’s ONE Conference in USA, May 2017.
