A Global Ecosystem of Startups

Sodexo began as a startup. The entrepreneurial spirit is part of our DNA. We keep this spirit alive by working closely with startups around the world and supporting our intrapreneurs.

Building a global network of local startups

Sodexo works with a large network of startups from around the world to pilot the latest solutions at our sites. One of the ways we identify the best startups is through the Sodexo Accelerator. This program helps identify the leading-edge solutions that will meet local needs while impacting our business globally and keeping our entrepreneurial spirit alive. Startups apply to the program, we select the most promising, and engage them in an intensive mentorship and pilot program. Selected entrepreneurs, working together with our executives, then have the opportunity to develop and deliver game-changing solutions to our clients.
