2024 Farm Bureau Ag Innovation Challenge

The 2024 edition of the US Farm Bureau Federation’s Ag Innovation Challenge is open for business.  This national business pitch competition is open to business with new ideas and innovations for addressing key challenges facing America’s farmers, ranchers, and rural regions.  The Challenge began in 2015 (EntreWorks Consulting supported its initial startup), and it has grown in scale and scope ever since.  It’s a great opportunity to promote new business ideas and concepts, and past winners are an inspiring and impressive group.  Last year’s winner, Kansas-based Nordef, is pioneering new approaches to reduce dangerous diesel fuel emissions.  This year’s top performer can win up to $50,000 and promote their work to the Farm Bureau and its huge national network.  The application period is open, with applications due by May 12, 2023.  Program rules can be accessed here.
