Trusted advice, tools and insights from people who want to see you succeed.

Iowa State University Research Park offers valuable support and resources for entrepreneurs and start-ups.

While you are focused on scientific research and product development, there are many other areas of your operation that may still require attention – administrative, marketing, management and more. ISU Research Park can put you in touch with professionals that know the growing pains of building a business and can help you stay on the path toward success.

For aspiring business owners, training and mentorship opportunities are available. ISU Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Center – designed to assist entrepreneurs with managing the real-world tasks of running a business – are both located at ISU Research Park. 

The Iowa State University Office of Economic Development and Industry Relations (EDIR) is the gateway for businesses looking to engage with ISU. Large, established enterprises and lone entrepreneurs can utilize EDIR as a one-stop shop for establishing connections beneficial in reaching their goals.
