Get Involved

Things are changing at a rapid pace.  Businesses are retooling and reinventing themselves.  Would you like to be part of a dynamic, inspiring community of entrepreneurial leaders?  Our goal is to grow one of the most dynamic entrepreneurial communities in the world.

Speaking Opportunities

Share your wisdom, your lessons, and tips with other entrepreneurs, leaders, students, and the Iowa State University community.  We are always looking for speakers for a variety of groups, such as the student-led Entrepreneur Club, the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Learning Community or part of our Reiman Speaker Series, please contact us as we are always looking for speakers.

Mentoring and Judging

Mentors play a very special role at the Iowa State Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship.  We are constantly matching new entrepreneurs with existing successful Iowa State alums, supporters, technologists, funders, and entrepreneurs. It may be your ‘been there, done that’ advice that our EntreBOLD network finds most valuable right now.   We also host several competition events each year where we are in need of judges from all different business, technology, and financial backgrounds.


We love to promote and collaborate on events related to entrepreneurship, innovation and improving Iowa’s businesses.  Our staff is also available to speak on these topics with advanced notice.

Success Stories and Where Are You Now

We want to hear from you!  Let us know your successes, what you’re working on, or even where in the world you are.  For stories, we love to cover entrepreneurial successes and even failures (as we know they do happen).  Our goal is to share these stories within our publications and networks, as with good ole fashioned storytelling comes opportunities for others to connect and hear your story.

If you’re interested in any of the opportunities to get involved, please contact the center at or 515-296-6532.  We look forward to hearing from you!
