Team up, pitch ideas, and create a business in a weekend. 

Dive into the entrepreneurial culture with classmates at Iowa Startup Games! This event is a three day competition where students, of all areas of study, pitch their crazy startup ideas, and in a team with peers, spend a weekend working to bring the idea into reality. By the third day, each team will show a minimal prototype and pitch to a group of panelists for a chance to win cash prizes. Students will learn problem solving skills, will have the opportunity to network with community members, and will begin to think like an entrepreneur.

If a student does not have a startup idea, the student will be able to choose an idea and join that team. Iowa Startup Games is designed to create a new business, with a team, over a weekend.

Not only will students have the opportunity to launch a business and grow their professional network, they will also be able to earn a credit hour, at no cost. Food and beverages will be provided throughout the entire weekend. Students must be able to attend majority of the weekend events, teams depend on their members for help and support.
