WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

Whether serving as keynote speaker at a major lecture for 500, talking to a classroom of 70 students, or informally meeting with a group of 20 student entrepreneurs during roundtable luncheons at the BELL, there are many ways to share your story and leave a lasting impression with our students.

SPEAKING OPPORTUNITIES

Share your story with hundreds of listeners from The University of Iowa and surrounding community. Make an impact by giving them advice and participate in a question and answer session following your presentation.

MENTORING AND JUDGING

Mentors, as well as business plan competition judges, are needed for student entrepreneurs. Advice and support, from people who have been there, is incredibly valuable. You can help these new entrepreneurs succeed faster with fewer mistakes! Iowa JPEC also offers several events for alumni and friends to meet and network with current students throughout the year, such as our Homecoming event at the BELL.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

Funding opportunities are varied and numerous. Sponsorship of elevator pitch and business plan competitions, covering expenses for student offices in the BELL, providing a scholarship, or contributing to a capital campaign are just some of the options available to our friends.
