Celebrating 10 Years of CyBIZ Lab

A note from CyBIZ Lab Program Director, Alex Andrade, and CyBIZ Lab Program Manager, Blake McClure:

For a decade, CyBIZ Lab has provided data-driven market-tested solutions to our partners. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we look back with gratitude and forward with excitement. Now a flagship program of the Iowa State Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship, we are excited to reflect on and celebrate the many awards, successful project outcomes, and endless student opportunities that have shaped the CyBIZ Lab program into what it is today.

Past CyBIZ Lab student consulting teams.

Over 315 Projects: CyBIZ Lab’s legacy is built on over 315 successful projects that have made a tangible difference in the local and global business landscape. Our projects have ranged from market research and strategy development to operational optimization and financial forecasting. We always provide real value to our partners and student teams. Each project has been a unique puzzle, and our talented team has consistently discovered innovative solutions to fit each piece.  

Over 200 Project Partners: Our long-standing partnerships have been the cornerstone of our success. With over 200 project partners, we have worked alongside diverse businesses, from startups to established enterprises and non-profit organizations. Our partners have trusted us with their most pressing challenges, and together we have charted paths toward sustainable growth and excellence. 

Over 230 Student Consultants: Mentorship and soft skill building is at the heart of CyBIZ Lab. We take pride in expanding the talents of over 230 student consultants who have worked with our project partners. These individuals represent the future of business leadership, and our program equips them with invaluable real-world experience and skills.  

As we celebrate our 10-year anniversary, we extend our gratitude to all our partners and the student consultants who have been instrumental in shaping the success of CyBIZ Lab. We remain committed to the mission of providing exceptional business consulting services and developing the business leaders of the future. Together with our future partners and student consultants, we look forward to the next decade of program growth and further creation of lasting business solutions.
