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

Dive into the entrepreneurial culture with your classmates at Iowa Startup Games! This is a three-day event where students, from all areas of study, pitch their ideas to have an impact. After you share, you will form teams and work together to bring the best ideas to life. By the third day, each team will pitch to a group of panelists for a chance to win cash prizes. You will learn problem-solving skills, have the opportunity to meet with community members, and begin to think like a creative entrepreneur. There is also the opportunity to earn one credit hour - at no cost (Iowa City location only), and we feed you (all weekend long)! Bring your ideas to life in a creative and collaborative weekend!

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.
