About the event
The Agribusiness Center for Research and Entrepreneurship (ACRE), an initiative of the South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA), connects entrepreneurs with new opportunities in agriculture, research and agribusiness to strengthen the state’s economy, particularly in rural counties. The ACRE Entrepreneurship Center ("Center") seeks the most innovative and forward thinkers in South Carolina agribusiness for participation in an Entrepreneurship Program (the “Program”). The Center is looking for companies and products it can help support in the marketplace through a collaborative effort. This program does not support research. Applicants may not have previously been awarded funds through the Advanced Program. Applicants selected to participate in the EC Program could receive a grant of up to $25,000 to develop their product or business, as well as access to a network of business mentors and grant writing consultants. This is a competitive program; not all applicants will be selected to pitch or receive funds. If you've received money in the Advanced Program before, you are not eligible to apply again. Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully before completing and submitting your application. By submitting your application to the Entrepreneurship Center, you accept and agree to the following terms and conditions.
