Dairy Innovation Mentors

Guide student innovators in the Dairy Innovation Hub Student Challenge.

An opportunity to shape the minds behind the dairy industry of tomorrow.

Serve as a professional advisor to students participating in the Fall 2020 Dairy Innovation Hub Student Challenge.

The Dairy Innovation Hub harnesses research and development at UW–Madison, UW–Platteville and UW–River Falls campuses to keep Wisconsin’s dairy community at the global forefront in producing nutritious dairy products in an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable manner.

This fall the Dairy Innovation Hub is hosting a Dairy Innovation Hub Student Challenge to encourage students to participate in developing novel solutions for problems being faced by the dairy industry as defined by the Dairy Task Force 2.0.

Students from UW-Madison, UW-Platteville, and UW-River Falls are all encouraged to participate in this virtual student challenge addressing the largest problems being faced by the Wisconsin dairy industry today. Be a part of their professional resource network to assist in business model, proof of concept, and minimal viable product development with opportunities to work closely with student teams.

Join us on September 21, 2020 for the Kick Off to learn more and meet the students interested in the Student Challenge.
