Building Capacity In People.
Sarah Beth Aubrey
Founder | CEO
Entrepreneurial at heart, at 26 I launched a retail meat business, and at 30 a grant-writing firm. I have since sold both businesses to investors. As the former CEO of Prosperity Ag, LLC, I wrote over 300 successful grants in 39 states, yielding nearly $100 million in funding. After selling the grant-writing business, I knew it was time to launch a consultancy that centered on developing people and their potential.
I work in several ways to help clients achieve results including with one-on-one executive coaching, by facilitating peer groups, or by leading boards through change-based planning initiatives.
As a speaker and workshop leader, I emphasize personal accountability and process improvement. Clients work with me to facilitate professional assessment tools for the creation of custom small group and individual training needs, and to design qualitative market research programs that support a better understanding of your customer or employee needs.
I was an Adjunct Faculty member at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and have designed and taught curriculum for graduate courses on entrepreneurship. The Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ) named me to 2013’s 40 Under 40 list of young professionals to watch and in 2015 I was honored as a member of Vance Publishing’s 40 under 40 in Agriculture.
Jasmine comes from a varied background of industries including 4-H Extension Office Assistant, Barnes & Noble, graduation supply manufacturer, and freelance copyeditor, and her love of learning new technology and industries has earned the nickname “Jane of All Trades.”
As the marketing manager for Sarah Beth Aubrey and brands, Jasmine brings together the graphic design, web layout, collateral pieces, copywriting, editing, and social media management to the company with a bubbly personality and can-do attitude.
Jasmine and her husband, Dave, live in Indianapolis with their cat.

Travis has also worked at Duke Energy where he helped launched the Indiana Small Business Energy Savings program, and at Ameresco to develop renewable energy, energy efficiency, and infrastructure renewal projects across Indiana.

Elevate Ag, LLC
Peer groups for innovative growers and agribusiness leaders
Every farm owner, grower, agribusiness leader, and solopreneur should have a network of mentors, emerging leaders, and peers around them. The first two are easy; the third is more difficult.
Elevate Ag peer groups are designed to match you with other innovative growers, ranchers, and agribusiness owners who support you, challenge you to be even better, suggest ways to overcome obstacles, and who you can rely on to tell you like it is…
Because they know how it is from months of hearing about and helping you in a non-competitive, confidential setting, and sometimes, they can speak from their own experiences to help shape your future.
Join a virtual ag peer group with Elevate Ag.
