October 16, 2020

Olds College will be using $200K from the Alberta government, and support from the federal government and partners from Calgary and California, to create The Olds College Smart Farm agricultural tech start-ups incubator. The smart farm will enable start-ups in Olds and in other places to develop technology that will support the agricultural sector through providing a space for them to do research and develop their technology. “The Olds College Smart Farm is focused on building and supporting a broad-based agriculture innovation ecosystem that connects researchers, technology companies, producers, manufacturers, retailers and learners to accelerate the development and adoption of technology and practice, and enhance the economic impact of Canada’s agriculture sector,” said Olds president Stuart Cullum.
