The University of Iowa’s John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center (Iowa JPEC) is committed to being a leader in teaching and supporting both innovation and entrepreneurial development.

Through a generous gift from John and Mary Pappajohn, the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center at University of Iowa was established in 1996. As a part of the Tippie College of Business, Iowa JPEC has grown its influence in the entrepreneurial community and inspired thousands of entrepreneurs to start a business in Iowa. Today, we’re committed to helping every entrepreneur, no matter their level of expertise, to start something great.
