Entrepreneur Club

Entrepreneur Club at Iowa State

The primary purposes and goals of the Entrepreneur Club are to encourage, inform, and educate students participating in entrepreneurship, to foster friendships among students who share similar interests, to instill passion about building sustainable ventures, and to provide members with a learning & support platform to minimize risk and to maximize success. We also want to promote the integration of science, art, and technology into viable social creations! The club meets two times per month on Wednesdays.

Members of the Club:

  • Network with business people.
  • Learn about being an entrepreneur.
  • Attend meetings to hear from real entrepreneurs. Each semester the entrepreneurs will range from students to experienced professionals.
  • Connect to speakers and business consultants.
  • Attend programs and events.

2021 Spring Calendar of Events

Workshops: During these meetings, we will be having hands-on experiences learning skills and techniques to help students start businesses and succeed in the business world.

Focus Groups: During these meetings, students will be working together to throw their ideas around and help each other solve issues and build their ideas. Even if someone doesn’t have an idea for a business, they are encouraged to join!

Speakers: During the semester we will be having three speakers from different companies, these companies are formed by entrepreneurs from Iowa State. Students will be able to ask questions and learn from the experience of a more seasoned individual.

Joint Events: At the end of the spring semester, we will be doing a joint meeting with UNI. This two-day event will include networking, a competition, and a speaker.
