The Food Lab invites you -- students, graduate students, faculty or staff -- to participate in our inaugural business plan competition.
Who should apply?
Entrepreneur teams with a business plan that targets the food industry. The food industry is rapidly transforming and we are looking for teams who have addressed the available opportunities in this massive market. The ideal team will have a business plan and team members with applicable expertise to execute the plan.
Prizes will be awarded to winners of the following categories:
Inputs and Production
Processing, Packaging, and Safety
Storage and Distribution
Healthy Eating and Food Education
The pre-registration window officially opens on June 1, 2014, but we invite the UT-Austin community to pre-register before we open registration nationally and internationally.
The winners of each category also compete for the grand prize of $5,000. This is a great networking opportunity for entrepreneurs — more than 30 judges will be in attendance representing all stages of funding and extensive food industry expertise.
