American Farm Bureau Federation’s Ag Innovation Challenge: Sign up Now!

If you’re an entrepreneur working in rural America or in sectors with a focus on food and agriculture, consider competing in the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 2021 Ag Innovation Challenge.  This annual competition recently kicked off, and the Farm Bureau and its partners are looking for startups with great ideas addressing challenges faced by America’s farmers, ranchers, and rural communities.   Up to ten entrepreneurs will be selected to compete in the final rounds at the Farm Bureau’s annual convention in January 2021.  Winners and top performers get lots of great publicity, coaching, mentoring, consulting services, and yes—money!   EntreWorks Consulting assisted in the creation of this competition in 2015, and I’m really pleased that it is thriving.  Some great companies have been past competitors and winners!   If you have a great idea or a great business, consider applying.   But, do so quickly, as the application deadline is July 31, 2020.  Please also note that you must be a Farm Bureau member to compete, but you can sign up with your application.  Details and application materials are here.
