CYstarters Alumni Award


As we wrap up the fifth CYstarters cohort, we want to invite all of our past alumni to watch the virtual CYstarters Demo Day on July 30 from 12:00-1:30 PM

…but with a few surprises! 

We love the community and relationships that have grown since the inception of CYstarters (May 23rd, 2016, to be exact).

Entrepreneurship is a community sport.

PEOPLE are the center of an entrepreneurship ecosystem, which is something the ISU Pappajohn Center values deeply.  What better way to support people than honoring our past alumni, who inspire the next set of student entrepreneurs every day!

We are excited to bring back the CYstarters Alumni Award!

What is it?  We will present two $1,500 awards to past participants/teams who have continuously made progress since participating in CYstarters!  All individuals who participated in CYstarters are eligible to apply (even for new/different businesses), and must apply no later than Monday, July 20, 2020.  The award will be judged upon business progress and future growth.
