Affiliates Program

The Affiliates Program of Start Something College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) creates partnerships with businesses as a pipeline to talent, thought leadership, and strategic innovation. Our view of entrepreneurship and innovation in agriculture is that it must take place across the full range of organizations in our industry, whether start-up companies or companies with a much longer history. Our aim is to create a constructive ‘ecosystem’ for innovation and entrepreneurship across agriculture.

Affiliate benefits from participation in the program include: 

  • Interaction with top student talent engaged in Start Something CALS programs
  • Interaction with entrepreneurs, investors, and others engaged in the agricultural entrepreneurship ecosystem
  • Visibility and outreach through participation in programs
