AgEdison focuses on entrepreneurship, innovation, and economics of agriculture and agribusiness.

By day, I am the Rastetter Chair of Agricultural Entrepreneurship at Iowa State University.  I serve as Director of the Agricultural Entrepreneurship Initiative and a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Economics.  My work includes development and delivery of undergraduate entrepreneurship curriculum and programs in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, outreach programs to aspiring entrepreneurs and agribusinesses, and research on entrepreneurship and risk management.

My past includes work in a variety of capacities in agriculture, with professional experiences ranging from six start-up companies, the seed industry, venture capital, futures markets, and agricultural and trade policy.

Current projects include the Ag Startup Engine, an investment platform for agtech startups.

My future includes…  Well, you’ll have to wait and see.

Best Wishes,

Kevin Kimle
