Fueling Iowa Businesses

Located in Iowa State University’s Research Park, the Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship serves as a bridge among the university’s entrepreneurship courses, experiential learning opportunities, and venture creation resources.  Founded under the premise that the center’s primary mission is to support and develop entrepreneurs in Iowa, the Iowa State Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship offers programs and services that broadly reach and connect students, community entrepreneurs, business professionals, and alumni.

The Center has two primary objectives:

  • to create a culture that encourages entrepreneurship and innovation
  • to provide the tools necessary for building and improving Iowa’s businesses
