Bringing the entrepreneurial community together with Iowa State faculty, researchers, students and resources.

Located at the Iowa State University Research Park, the Pappajohn Center is a catalyst for launching and growing successful tech companies. Through business education, training, assistance and networking contacts, the Pappajohn Center helps shorten the transition from aspiring entrepreneur to established enterprise.

The Pappajohn Center supports a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation, while providing the tools to build and improve your business. 

The Pappajohn Center is a resource for student initiatives, new small business owners, tech start-ups and corporate spin-offs alike. Often, the Pappajohn Center serves as the first step in transforming a technology or idea into a commercially viable venture.

CyBIZ Lab is another area where the Pappajohn Center provides opportunity, as cross functional teams of students work directly with businesses to tackle real-world challenges together. Students gain valuable experience, while companies benefit from new perspective.
