The Accelerator and the team are based in Paris. We primarily support projects in developing countries.
The first project replicated
The first project supported is called Spiral Farm House, located in Nepal and founded 5 years ago by Sudarshan Chaudhary.
This young entrepreneur came back to his parents’ farm after his master’s degree in Kathmandu. His vision led him to turn the traditional farm into an organic farm, with the principles of biodynamics, to regenerate agricultural land damaged by fertilizers, bring food security to his village and train many young people and women on his techniques.
Through our support, the project aims to be accelerated to create a large network of hundreds of micro organic farms, organized into a cooperative, which will distribute its production to Kathmandu and other cities in the country.
