IntelliFarm to partner with NIC
Product development company IntelliFarm is Nebraska Innovation Campus’ newest partner. Dan Duncan, executive director of NIC, said the company would move its corporate office into space on campus later this year.
“We are pleased with the synergy and interactions IntelliFarm will bring to our campus and culture,” Duncan said.
IntelliFarm, based in Lincoln, develops intelligent and revolutionary products for the global agricultural industry. The company is engineering disruptive AgTech focused on simple and elegant technology solutions for agriculture.
“It is important for our company to foster a culture of innovation,” said Steve R. Tippery, the company’s president and chief executive officer. “We see our company’s proximity near (the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s City and East) campuses conducive to our innovation initiative as a leader in AgTech.”
Locating at NIC provides IntelliFarm with multiple opportunities to collaborate with UNL. The company offers internships to computer science and engineering, biological systems engineering and business students.
IntelliFarm also intends to fund UNL research through partnerships on private, state and federally sponsored research.
NIC is a research campus designed to facilitate new and in-depth partnerships between the university and private sector businesses. At full build-out, it will be a 2.2-million square-foot campus with uniquely designed buildings and amenities that inspire creative activity and engagement, transforming ideas into global innovation.
