EntreFEST May 20-22nd


Calling all Students, Entrepreneurs, Entre-Professionals + Companies!

EntreFEST is back and will be the largest gathering of Iowa’s entrepreneurs, innovators, business owners, ecosystem builders and students.  This is not another boring and static conference. 

Instead, picture a festival were the energy is electric.  The influential keynotes are on point including, Ben Milne of Dwolla, Trevor Owens of Lean Enterprise, Jackie Berglund of Finnegans, Inc to name a few. LateFEST offers the music and art vibes on the cobblestoned streets of downtown Iowa City.  And one could argue the best part, the serendipitous connection and relationships gained.

This year Iowa State University is a regent sponsor!  What does this mean for you?
