Invitees: All Ohio college students

Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will host SmartAg 4.0, a 24-hour event that brings entrepreneurial-minded students interested in using technology to create the next generation of food systems with university faculty and staff, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists.

SmartAg 4.0 is an opportunity for students to conceive, create, and develop app‐based start-up business models with the support of business strategists, subject matter experts, thought leaders, and idea people. The four domain areas for the business models: 1) food security and safety, 2) sustainability, 3) production efficiency and 4) last mile. Students do not need computer programming skills to participate.

Multi‐disciplinary student teams will self-organize and work from Friday night through Saturday afternoon to compete for prizes and cash awards.  Wireframe app designs and business strategies will be judged on Saturday afternoon by a panel of venture capitalists and agribusiness leaders.
