What is your story?
Coming into college I wanted to be an entrepreneur, but didn't truly believe that it could become a reality. That was until the summer after my freshmen year when I was working in an agricultural appraisal office. After only a couple of weeks, I noticed that the current software being used was outdated and inefficient. From that moment on, I took it upon myself to found a software company that makes the ag appraisal process more efficient. Knowing nothing about software, I turned to Dr. Field and the Engler staff for their connections. In just a couple of short weeks, I was meeting with Sourabh Chakraborty to develop the software portion of Terrace Ag.
What is your business?
The business I founded is Terrace Ag, which is an agricultural appraisal software. terraceag.net
What advice would you give to a student starting their entrepreneurial journey?
Be a connection. I have no experience as a software developer and I am not an expert in the agricultural appraisal industry, but that doesn't mean I can't be the connection between the two. Look throughout your everyday life and see if there is an opportunity to be the connection between two industries that don't normally collaborate. If you do that, you just might have a sustainable business on your hands."
