The Okoboji Entrepreneurial Institute is offered to college students from the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, University of Northern Iowa, Buena Vista University and Iowa Lakes Community College. Students participate in an advanced study of entrepreneurship that includes an entrepreneurial simulation, seminars with successful entrepreneurs, business and community leaders, and networking and mentoring to enhance their understanding of entrepreneurship opportunities in Iowa. They work in teams on a computer-based simulation that incorporates the creation and operation of a new business, and a fundraising round where the teams present their plans to community volunteer venture capitalists to acquire capital to fuel growth for their simulated companies. Okoboji Entrepreneurial Institute is offered by Iowa Lakes Corridor Development Corporation.
