Agrapole Incubator

ISARA-Lyon and professional organizations members of AGRAPOLE Cluster developed an incubator to support innovative business creation in the food sector.

A program to support business creators in the agricultural and food sectors : Foodshaker !


Since 2008, ISARA-Lyon and AGRAPOLE members (COOP de France, APECITA, PRESTAL…) have implemented a program aiming at helping business creators for innovative food projects.


A program to support business creation has been implemented, based on competencies within ISARA-Lyon and structures at AGRAPOLE.

This « AGRAPOLE Incubator » is complementary and operates in partnership with other programs already existing in the Rhône-Alpes region and in France (CREALYS, EM Lyon…)

It aims to go with project holders  (technical, scientific or service activities) involved in the agricultural and food sectors).


  • A favourable environment: equipped offices, access to laboratories and pilot-scale production line
  • A technical and marketing support offered by our experts and AGRAPOLE's partner organizations
  • The opportunity to profit from students' tutored work (group projects, internships and master's theses, etc) 

Since its creation, 32 projects have been supported or are currently under support.
