This project aimed to develop the development of sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship through educational actions aimed at rural companies, using the Empreenda Agro Sustentável University Extension Program as a promotion tool. In order to contemplate the proposed objective, workshops roundtables were adopted as a method, aiming at the dissemination of agile management values and techniques and the promotion of entrepreneurship, to stimulate business in rural production. Through the Empreenda Agro Sustentável Program, based on the form of active methodologies, teams of students discussed and sophisticated ideas in start-up model designs, resulting in scalable and negotiable businesses in rural areas. Through the Empreenda Agro Sustentável Program, based on the study of active methodologies, 15 teams discussed and matured ideas in start-up designs. The participants who were involved in each of the stages (workshops) boosted their entrepreneurial visions by contacting methodologies that are not yet included in the regular academic content of undergraduate courses in agrarian sciences. This research presents an important discussion about active education methodologies as a university development program and the interdisciplinarity between the areas of agrarian sciences and the development of entrepreneurial science.
