Faculty Innovators, Venture School Program

The University of Iowa John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center's (Iowa JPEC) Faculty Innovators Program is a shortened 4-week version of Venture School designed to provide University faculty members with the opportunity to develop marketable ideas and accelerate the startup process. This program will give participants an introduction to the Lean Launchpad methodology and familiarize them with the Business Model Canvas and Customer Discovery. At the conclusion of the program, participants are encouraged to proceed with Venture School’s regular 6-week session or at the national level with the NSF I-Corps program. This is the only program in the state of Iowa that advances its participants to the national level with the NSF I-Corps program.
