ABIC has re-emerged as the Agricultural Bioscience Innovation Centre with the goal of promoting science as a powerful tool for addressing global challenges. Recently, ABIC received a funding boost from Saskatoon's Brent Zettl of ZYUS Life Sciences, with the goal of benefiting Saskatchewan entrepreneurs through education, with the Beyond Entrepreneurship training program, developed and managed by Ag-West Bio.


The ABIC Speaker Series features experts from around the world with a passion for solving global challenges using science and technology, to inspire and teach entrepreneurs and the public. 


Beyond Entrepreneurship: Building an Agri-Value Business is a new program to help Saskatchewan entrepreneurs gain the knowledge they need to succeed. The program comprises two modules: Building a Winning Plan: Agricultural Processing Business Plan Training and Building Entrepreneurial Leadership. LEARN MORE
