Iowa State University received a $100,000 grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation as part of the foundation’s Heartland Challenge. The grant will support the creation of a coordinated educational event series across John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Centers and other campus economic development units in Iowa to better prepare university-affiliated entrepreneurs for launch and investment.

Iowa State’s Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship, in partnership with the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center at the University of Iowa, was one of 17 organizations from across the states of Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas selected by the Kauffman Foundation to receive funding through The Heartland Challenge. Grantees will work to solve for specific challenges entrepreneurs in the region face, and will participate in facilitated, peer-learning communities of practice to share knowledge across the region.
