Tiffany Heng-Moss, dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, highlighted the success of the Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program in a March 3 op-ed for the Lincoln Journal Star.
Since 2010, the program has helped students understand real-world business conditions and think through the best strategies for business success, Heng-Moss wrote.
Engler alumni have gone on to start businesses that have generated more than $145 million in gross revenue. For 2021, the figure was $36.8 million.
Jordan Bader, an Engler alumna from Ainsworth, was featured in the op-ed. Bader cofounded Marble Technologies, a company bringing artificial intelligence automation to the food processing industry.
Bader said Engler brings together “a community of people who will challenge you, but it’s coming from a good place because they want to see you succeed and do better. I do not think I would be in an early-stage startup company as one of the cofounders without my time in the Engler program.”
