We lost a dear friend and colleague this week.  Ted was passionate about his work, his clients, and was a huge supporter of the Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship. We will miss him so very much.

Ted and his family have kindly requested memorials be directed to the Iowa State University Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship.  To honor Ted’s memory, memorials may be directed to the Iowa State Foundation or by mail at the address below (for checks, please provide a memo notation “Ted Bair memorial”).

They Don't Want You To Know This...

But entrepreneurs are some of the most fascinating people. But why do we find them so fascinating?

  • Entrepreneurs Start something + take lead
  • Entrepreneurs Vision + create where they want to be + are open to the possibilities
  • Entrepreneurs Pursue their passions and don’t fall for normalcy.
  • Entrepreneurs Live a self-directed life + are committed to not give up
  • Entrepreneurs Succeed or fail fast—But one thing is for certain, they’re always learning

So whether you come from an entrepreneurial background or maybe you just learned how to spell entre-pre-neur,

We believe that an adventure in entrepreneurship is worth starting while at Iowa State.

Since 1996, the ISU Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship has helped fuel businesses in Iowa. We want to take you from “I have an idea” to “I run a million billion-dollar company.” And we know it’s possible.

To think boldly. Go big. And transform the world.

The John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Centers offer a comprehensive entrepreneurial program for learning.  My goal in establishing the centers is to educate and train adults and students to give them confidence…so that they can become successful entrepreneurs.

John Pappajohn Philanthropist & Founder and CEO of Equity Dynamics, Inc
The atmosphere of entrepreneurial spirit is alive within the talent and resources of the ISU Pappajohn Center. The team at the ISU Pappajohn Center is always eager and very capable of offering assistance, especially during the early stages of new businesses.  We have also had the pleasure of working with CyBIZ Lab that is based at the Center, which has been a great resource of talented students for market research and business planning.  The connection with Iowa State University students, for internships, as well as faculty that support the entrepreneurial spirit of new businesses, isa great asset for any business that establishes their initial roots here.
Kevin Maher Founder of GlobalVetLink & VetMeasure

Founders often feel like they’re alone on an island. CYstarters helps solve that problem, by bringing founders together with their peers, all while offering support from the entire Iowa State University network.

Clayton Mooney Founder of Nebullam

CYstarters was more than just a program, it’s a community. It’s people you can turn to when you feel like everything in your business is falling apart, or want to celebrate a recent success. It’s a network of support that is vital for a startup to be successful.
