The John Pappajohn Entreprenuerial Center (JPEC) at the University of Northern Iowa is a division of Business and Community Services, which is included in the College of Business Administration. The JPEC offers programs focusing on entrepreneurship education, technology transfer, and capital investment for small businesses. These programs include: a certificate in entrepreneurship; a student business incubator; academic and non-academic entrepreneurship courses including a summer program; small business assistance; conferences, symposia, and workshops; business plan competitions; equity funds; and a student entrepreneurs’ organization.
The Certificate in Entrepreneurship is designed to engage students in active participation in the development of entrepreneurial enterprises. Students do this through a combination of traditional course work specifically directed to entrepreneurial ventures and participation in an enterprise experience through the development of a business plan for a new venture and an experiential project.
The Student Business Incubator is a private philanthropy and Small Business Administration- funded program of the JPEC designed to inspire and educate UNI students interested in entrepreneurship and small business. The incubator is an educational learning lab for student business owners to explore ideas with the assistance of the JPEC and other professionals. The incubator has ten fully equipped professional suites for student businesses and a comprehensive small business education and counseling program.
