About us

The Iowa JPEC Student Ambassador Program is comprised of 10-12 entrepreneurial students who represent the Entrepreneurial Center to the community, the University of Iowa student body, and prospective students. The Ambassadors promote various entrepreneurial programs through a variety of UI and community events.
