The Rabobank-MIT Food & Agribusiness Innovation Prize, sponsored by Rabobank and supported by MIT J-WAFS and the MIT Food and Agriculture Club, is a premier business-plan competition for university and graduate students. This prize is distinct from other competitions because of its specific focus on food and agribusiness and the access it will provide successful entrants to the broad business community.
The competition will take place in two stages. First round applications (APPLY HERE!) will be due by December 23, 2016 11:59 PM EST, from which the finalists will be selected for stage two. Finalists will then be paired with mentors to refine their ideas. Mentors will be leading experts in industry and academia, with experience relevant to finalist submissions. At the Award Ceremony in Spring 2017, finalists will present their business plan and compete to win $25,000 in total prize money will be awarded ($12k, $8k, and $5k for first through third place, respectively).
