Mr. Schickler,

I couldn't agree more and we're trying to do just that at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Last year myself and other current students started a new student group called the Food, Environment, Agribusiness, and Development Group (FEAD), www.boothfead.org . We are now one of the largest student groups on campus. Like you said, "The breadth of opportunity for innovation and entrepreneurship in agriculture is unmatched," and we're focusing attention on the numerous challenges and opportunities for young professionals in the world of food and agriculture. With such important global issues as food security and volatile food prices, creative and innovative young professional should be looking to solve these global challenges through entrepreneurship and business leadership. Thanks for your initiative!
