AgI2C focuses on: (a) incubating AGNR student teams to develop and pitch ideas for products and services, (b) offering an intensive Winter Term course for graduate students, and (c) developing a learning and doing culture in AGNR academic courses.

AgI2C taps into the University’s strong innovation network that includes the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship in the Robert H. Smith School of Business, the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech) in the A. James Clark School of Engineering, the Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and the Office of Technology Commercialization in the University’s Division of Research.
