Product development company IntelliFarm will move its corporate office into space on Innovation Campus this year.
IntelliFarm, based in Lincoln, was founded with the goal to solve everyday agriculture industry problems through the use of smart technology. It was in the 2015 class of startup companies in NMotion, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln business accelerator program.
"It is important for our company to foster a culture of innovation," president and CEO Steve R. Tippery said in a news release. "We see our company's proximity near (the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's City and East) campuses conducive to our innovation initiative as a leader in AgTech."
The company offers internships to students in computer science and engineering, biological systems engineering and business. IntelliFarm also intends to finance UNL research through partnerships on private, state and federally sponsored research.
NIC is a research campus designed to encourage new and in-depth partnerships between the university and private-sector businesses. More information is available online at innovate.unl.edu.
