Applications open for Sodexo’s Global Accelerator programme

Applications are now open for Sodexo’s 2024 Global Accelerator programme, an initiative aimed at boosting the collaboration between Sodexo and startups.

The programme is a key force for Sodexo to have a finger on the pulse of the latest trends and disruptions in the service industry, and for startups selected to work with Sodexo, it provides an opportunity to ‘accelerate’ their development by benefiting from experienced business mentors, decades of industry knowledge and a global client footprint. Selected startups 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 our consumers worldwide through a 10-week programme.

For this global edition, Sodexo is asking for applications in five key areas of focus:

  • Data Analytics to improve the use of data across its client accounts and allow Sodexo to make sure their clients’ teams are communicating as effectively as possible, making data-informed decisions.
  • Sustainability to focus on how to measure and assess carbon impact across activities and initiatives and create solutions that can help reduce carbon emissions across Sodexo’s services.
  • Consumer Experience to explore solutions to increase the ease and accessibility of clients’ sites, improve the flexibility of their workforce and optimise resource utilisation to deliver the best possible consumer experience. They wish to understand how they can capture the voice of their consumers seamlessly to ensure they are driving continuous improvement.
  • Operational Efficiency to provide practical solutions that can streamline workflows, optimise resources, digitise and modernise processes.
  • Wildcard to add value to Sodexo’s business and that of its clients.

Applications will close on 25 February 2024, and those who will be successful will go live in May, facilitated by L Marks, a corporate innovation specialist with experience of running a large number of programmes with some of the world’s leading companies.

Martin Boden, CEO, 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.”
