The Center of Excellence for Food and Agriculture at Cornell AgriTech leverages institutional resources and expertise to cultivate innovation, economic growth and robust job creation in New York’s food and farming sector. The center accelerates business development by connecting startups and existing businesses with the research and commercialization support, mentorship and strategic partnerships that they need to grow and thrive.
Cathy Young, the newly appointed director, has an ambitious vision for the center and believes the climate is ripe for food and agriculture entrepreneurs in New York state. Young recently shared this vision with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS).
