Sharda University's Sharda Launchpad Federation, a business incubator and accelerator, has established a strategic alliance with FigFax (SnackFax) to launch the Sharda Global Food and Beverage Accelerator. Within India's first F&B Accelerator, the program is slated to mentor and expedite over 50 potential food startups in the coming year. 

On September 23, Sharda Launchpad began taking registrations from business owners and startups in the food industry. A wide range of enterprises is eligible for this program, including those involved in food processing, dairy, and mechanisation, quick-service restaurants (QSR), eating places, poultry, logistics, warehousing, infrastructure and mechanisation, packaging, drinks, and other industries. With only 20 start-ups from the first cohort moving on to the next round of selection, the process is expected to be quite competitive.
