Every year we organize 3 acceleration programs.

Serving Concepts Masterclass

We aim to identify, guide, and grow the entrepreneurial movement in hospitality.

We organize accelerator programs where the new generation of entrepreneurs will benefit from workshops and mentoring sessions supported by leading entrepreneurs in the HoReCa industry as well as professionals from related industries.

At the end of the program, we organize a financing pitch, with the participation of some of the most important investment funds and angel investors, so that the graduates of our programs can obtain financing to scale their businesses.

How do we proceed?


We are waiting for your registrations until 31 october 2023


The F&B Business Accelerator jury will review the applications and will accept into the Program those business ideas and startups that innovate and have the potential to become successful businesses.


We are starting the program with a 3-day bootcamp in Piatra Neamț (November 13-15). The costs for accommodation, food, and related activities are included in the participation fee (550 EUR + VAT). This is followed by 6 weeks of online workshops and mentoring sessions with top entrepreneurs and trainers with international experience.

Graduates of the F&B Business Accelerator will have the opportunity to support a funding pitch in front of several investment funds and angel investors.

The accelerator is very well structured, it’s built to meet the needs of any business project, concept or new idea. For a startup, most development and implementation steps are very challenging and growing the business is hard work. Mentoring, brainstorming and constant feedback sessions manage to shine a light on those problems that any team has. The networking part is very varied and it’s very easy to create contacts and collaborations with the other participants. The mentors, through their experiences and things they share with us, manage to bring that added value and incentive that startups need to persevere.

There were very interesting and particularly useful sessions due to the fact that I had the opportunity to observe different perspectives and approaches. The accelerator exceeded my expectations and I gladly recommend it to anyone. The guests’ presentations were full of information, but I am glad that my personal agenda has grown considerably and I have contacts from many fields. Thank you! I look forward to the next editions

F&B Business Accelerator is an X-ray as accurate as possible of the current landscape in the field, an experience that shows you the system, challenges and opportunities. The workshops and discussions are applied to real cases, and we, the students, receive directly applicable solutions, insights, big picture, 1 on 1 support, as well as entering a warm, supportive and human-centered community. Participating in the accelerator clarified for me the next steps towards the development of our farm and, since the end of the program, coincidence or not (I think not), the numbers look much better.

We had the opportunity to receive feedback from some impressive names in the HoReCa industry before we launched our product.

As a result, we were able to perfect the concept in much less time and with much less investment. What was more valuable was the sheer volume of practical information received from our mentors, as well as their willingness to assist us on our entrepreneurial journey. The project was well-organized and focused on all stages of a business, preparing us for real-world situations!

I am super happy because I had the opportunity to take part in the Horeca Business Accelerator. I was able to focus on what was truly important: knowledge and networking.

Last but not least, we received significant financial assistance for business digitization.

We were specifically assisted in purchasing an ERP solution to help us accurately manage the entire manufacturing process.

This translates into an improvement in the quality of our products.

I don’t think there has been a more powerful emotion since we started this company than when we discovered we had been accepted into the program. We knew right away that we’d been accepted into the most important “faculty” in this field, where we’d meet some of the most important professors who would guide our steps throughout this period.

The fact that we had the opportunity to pitch to several investors at the end of the workshops and win a grant for the best pitch brought us one step closer to our dream and validated the direction we proposed to take.
