The objective for this course is for students to develop knowledge and skills in international business development through experiential learning. Students will act as a consulting team for three to four early stage U.S agricultural technology businesses, assessing the market potential for their products in Brazil and creating a roadmap for developing their businesses there. They will interact heavily with the agricultural technology businesses, government and trade organizations, and Brazilian agricultural businesses and farms.

Each year, the Agricultural Entrepreneurship Initiative hosts several events and workshops for students to network with entrepreneurs and business leaders, develop their creative business skills, and learn new ways to approach their idea. All are welcome to join our events, whether you're pursuing your own venture or simply curious. Events vary by semester, so if nothing piques your interest now, check back next semester to see what's new.
