National Foodworks Services (a food incubator located in Decatur, IL) and ADM are launching the first Food Innovation Challenge.  Seven Millikin University students from 5 disciplines have worked together for 2 months to help launch this entrepreneurial event.
This is a great opportunity for aspiring food entrepreneurs or newly formed food businesses to take a recipe from a concept to a commercial reality.  The goal is to launch new food product businesses in the food retail industry.  Lofty goals for sure - but there are major partners who want to make this a reality!
The grand prize is $50,000 + $50K of in-kind services from the new food incubator.


Applications are due May 16th.  Visit the website for application details and rules.
Any resident of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin or Michigan is eligible to apply this year.  Next year the goal is to make the event a national draw.
