State Incentives for Agribusinesses
Bridging the gap between what you need and what government can provide.
Have you ever walked into a restaurant in a foreign land and tried to order off a menu you can’t read? Have you stopped to help a stranded motorist only to realize they don’t speak any of the languages you speak? Have you scoured a government website trying to identify business assistance resources and logged off having no idea what you qualify for?
Entrepreneurship and emerging technologies involve new ideas and new language. Agribusiness, AgTech, and AgriTech are tackling old problems in new ways and the bureaucracy of public resources does not evolve as quickly as the terminology of today’s agriculture-related businesses. Today's speaker, Christine Logan, is with the government and she's here to help!
With a focus on Up delight programs and incentives, Ms. Logan will help businesses uncover resources that can help their business grow. This session will help the audience understand:
• When AgTech is defined as "agriculture" and when it is "technology";
• Where “rural” programs apply;
• How to define economic base, qualified entity, manufacturing, new business, and others; and,
• How to translate the language of bureaucracy to meet the needs of business.
