Dairy Farmers of America Helping Drive Innovation in Ag Through Corporate Accelerator Program

Tue, 21 Aug 2018 12:30:03 CDT

Dairy Farmers of America Helping Drive Innovation in Ag Through Corporate Accelerator Program Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), a national cooperative owned by family farmers across the U.S., is focused on helping bring innovation to the farm and the dairy case. Today, the Cooperative and Sprint announced that applications are open for the 2019 Corporate Accelerator program that help identify and grow start up businesses.



Sprint and DFA, which is now in its third year of sponsoring the program, will look to recruit ag tech companies as well as early stage food product companies that are dairy-focused.



“At DFA, we’re constantly searching for new ways to elevate and grow the dairy industry,” says Monica Massey, senior vice president and chief of staff at DFA. “For this reason, we are committed to connecting, mentoring and guiding rising entrepreneurs in food and ag.”



Features of the 90-day Accelerator program include:


- Targeted, strategic meetings with the corporate partner teams to discuss business development, pilots and potential sponsorships;


- Mentoring from DFA senior members and their networks, as well as from the investor, business development and entrepreneurial communities;


- Business building sessions around product, brand, marketing and entrepreneurship;


- State-of-the-art workspace facilities provided at Sprint Accelerator in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District.



“DFA has been a great sponsor and we look forward to continuing our work with them in 2019,” said Doug Dresslaer, managing director of the Sprint Accelerator.



Additional details and applications are available at sprintaccelerator.com. The 90-day program will begin on April 1, 2019 and run through June 25, 2019.
