The University of Iowa

Pappajohn Student Entrepreneurial Venture Competition

The John Pappajohn Student Entrepreneurial Venture Competition is intended for college and university students in Iowa who have an interest in starting their own venture. Plans will be judged based on content, concept, and viability of the business idea. A qualifying competition will be held at the University of Iowa (combined with the Business Model Competition), with three finalists moving forward to the statewide competition in Des Moines. This competition is hosted by the five John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Centers in Iowa, John Pappajohn, and Equity Dynamics.
