About the Competition

The Alltech Innovation Competition started in 2013 in Kentucky and Ireland, and challenges undergraduate and graduate university teams to develop forward-thinking business plans on innovative ideas in animal nutrition, crop science, food, and brewing and distilling that will improve local economies. This competition, now annual, celebrates entrepreneurship and the impact of cross-functional teamwork on business development.

Winning ventures are awarded with a potential prize package of $10,000*. This is the same amount with which Dr. Pearse Lyons founded Alltech, now an almost $2 billion company.
