Introducing the 2017-18 FABricate Contestants

Upon review of proposals for the 2017-18 FABricate, Food and AgriBusiness Entrepreneurial Initiative, we have chosen our top 3 teams to proceed to our final competition in March. Through March, these students will be working alongside of faculty and staff members furthering the development of their product/business. Each team is required to attend monthly "Think Tanks" where they will work on smoothing out the details of launching their businesses. Each team is funded $1,500 to further the research and development of their product/ business.

The next time these teams go head-to-head will be on Wednesday, March 28th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the FABricate Finale. The winning team will walk away with a check for $5,000 and crowned with the FABricate Grand Prize title. You won’t want to miss it!
